Optical materials news

Researchers have developed a family of polymer materials that come alive when hit with light – bending, rotating and even crawling on surfaces.

A new film made of gold nanoparticles can change color in response to any type of movement, including bending or twisting.

By utilizing a seed crystal, researchers have succeeded in printing functional light-emitting diodes from a hybrid perovskite solution.

How to boost the tin in your GeSn semiconductor alloys

A novel metasurface can operate as many birefringent materials in parallel, allowing more compact manipulation of light polarization.

By combining them with fluorescent molecules, researchers have, for the first time, been able to study the real-time dynamics of boron nitride nanotubes.

Scientists have used graphene to help develop an opal-like crystalline material that could be the cornerstone of next generation smart sensors.

hollow carbon loaded with drugs can be given a boost by bombarding them with microwaves and laser irradiation to treat tumors

Scientists have observed light emission from a new type of transition between electronic valleys, known as intervalley transmissions, in a 2D material.

A novel heat treatment with an organic group can enhance the stability of tin halide perovskite solar cells by preventing tin oxidation.

Scientists think that defects in low-dimensional perovskites may be responsible for their broad emission spectrum and large color variation.

A novel method for mixing metals generally known to be immiscible at the nanoscale can create a new range of bimetallic nanoparticles.

Researchers have developed a lead-free perovskite for use in solar cells that could be a safer and more stable than lead-based perovskites.
