Controlling the dynamics of moisture responsive wrinkles.

Researchers have discovered a technique for electrically manipulating light via atomically-thin semiconductors.

Scientists have discovered that a single-atom-thick layer of chromium triiodide displays intrinsic magnetism.

By controlling how nanoparticles self-assemble at three different length scales, scientists have produced a tough and strong polymer nanocomposite.

A combination of C60, graphene and hexagonal boron nitride has similar properties to silicon but better chemical stability, lightness and flexibility.

A new type of alumina-based inorganic nanocomposite can protect perovskite quantum dots against air, sunlight, heat and water.

Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites have a couple of properties that could make them a promising material for spintronics.

Latest metrics show strong increases for the Materials Today family.

The efficiency of a perovskite solar cell with water-repelling layers increases when it self-organizes to stand on edge.
