Nanomaterials news, August 2021

Researchers have produced carbon nanotube fibers that can act as a thermoelectric generator, able to turn heat into electricity.

Confining electrons in the one-dimensional sub-units of fibrous red phosphorous can cause this material to display strong photoluminescence.

Over the past 30 years, quantum dots have progressed from scientific curiosities to becoming critical components of various emerging technologies.

By fabricating nanoantennas on a semiconductor surface, researchers have developed an efficient way for converting light from one wavelength to another.

Discovery of New Nonlinear Optical Materials

For the first time, scientists have observed a new quantum state potentially related to dark matter, known as an axion insulator, in a 2D antiferromagnet.

A novel technique that uses blasts of ultrasound to help recycle silver nanowires in electronic devices could work with many other nanomaterials.

Researchers have observed signs of a rare type of superconductivity known as 'spin-triplet' in magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene.
