Nanomaterials news, August 2019

Scientists have come up with a novel protocol for enhancing hexagonal-boron nitride, which is notoriously difficult to modify, with carbon chains.

Engineers have developed the thinnest optical waveguide in the world, comprising a tungsten disulfide monolayer suspended on a silicon frame.

Scientists have developed a novel solution-based method for synthesizing atomically flat oxidized borophene sheets.

Scientists have created a 2D form of gold that is just two atoms thick, which has a catalytic activity 10 times greater than gold nanoparticles.

In the presence of a moiré pattern, electrons in graphene organize themselves into stripes, providing a link with superconductors.

Using a helium-ion microscope, researchers have created the world's densest nano arrays for anchoring magnetic fluxons in superconductors.

Scientists have shown that thin films of rust, or iron oxide, can generate electricity when saltwater flows over them.

Segregated sections of ‘zigzag’ and ‘armchair’ facets on carbon nanotubes growing from a solid catalyst are more stable than a circular arrangement.

Graphene membranes covered in polymeric chains are better at capturing carbon dioxide than previous high-performance membranes.

By combining thin organic layers with thick layers of hybrid perovskite, researchers have developed micrometer-thick organic light-emitting diodes.

With the help of a novel insulator made of calcium fluoride, scientists have created an ultra-thin transistor with excellent electrical properties.
