Shock of the new neodymium-doped alumina crystals

By doping alumina crystals with neodymium ions, engineers have developed a new laser material that can emit ultra-short, high-power pulses.

Nanoscale imaging could lead to better artificial photosynthesis materials

Scientists have used a photoconductive atomic force microscope to better understand the nanoscale properties of artificial photosynthesis materials.

A novel polymer material can change its structure in response to light, converting from a rigid substance to a softer one that can heal itself.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

Star-shaped gold nanoparticles coated with titanium dioxide can harness visible and infrared light to generate hydrogen from water.

Connecting a graphene layer with two other atomic layers can extend the lifetime of excited electrons in graphene by several hundred times.

Researchers have found that a novel hybrid improper ferroelectric possesses ferroelectric, magnetoelectric and optical properties.

Researchers have been able to store and transmit bits of quantum information using a diamond containing specially-designed silicon vacancies.

By using an ion beam to twist and bend a nanometer-thick layer of metal, scientists have created nanodevices for manipulating light.

By mixing and matching different materials, researchers have created a window coating that can prevent excessive heating and generate electricity.

Altering the composition of a layered halide material allows researchers to vary its magnetization continuously between in-plane and out-of-plane.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.
