Improving on Dirac cone approximation in graphene thermionic emission

A subtle interaction between single atomic defects in the 2D material tungsten diselenide and mechanical strain causes it to emit quantum light.

An alloy-based nanoparticle catalyst offers a greener route to producing a more robust version of a polymer used in bulletproof vests.

Researchers have developed an artificial, layered crystal composed of the elements lanthanum, titanium, cobalt and oxygen in atom-thick sheets.

Scientists have discovered that the magic angle at which two layers of graphene become superconducting is slightly wider than originally thought.

Using a silver substrate and molecular-beam epitaxy , scientists were able to grow elongated, hexagon-shaped flakes of the 2D material borophene.

Researchers have found that graphene has many of the same mechanical properties as 3D graphite and is significantly thicker than widely believed.

As a step towards fabricating circuits from nanomaterials, engineers have created heterostructures from the 2D materials graphene and borophene.

By combining different materials, scientists have created highly configurable, nanoscale thermal light emitters for producing light from heat.

Scientists have found a new way to manipulate the electronic properties of 2D tungsten disulfide that could prove useful for quantum computing.

Researchers have created a net-like structure, called a ‘nanochain’, of antimony, which can enhance lithium-ion charge capacity in batteries.

Smart skin that responds to heat and sunlight

Films of platinum only two atoms thick supported by graphene could usher in fuel cell catalysts with unprecedented catalytic activity and longevity.

Coating chlorine-etched aluminum foil with carbon nanotubes created a material that is 10 times blacker than anything previously reported.
