Optical materials news, August 2018

Adding lithium ions into the crystal structure of a quantum material called samarium nickelate makes it an ion conductor but an electrical insulator.

Layered 2D heterostructures offer novel twist on tuning properties

Researchers can fine-tune the electronic, mechanical and optical properties of 2D heterostructures by varying the angle between the crystals in real time.

Scientists have discovered that negatively curved carbon sheets known as schwarzites can be synthesized inside the pores of zeolites.

Synthetic biology protein and polymer building blocks are used to construct ‘smart’ materials systems that can perceive and process information.

Nanowires could help restore impaired neurological functions involved in vision and movement

Researchers have developed a way to embed high-speed optoelectronic semiconductor devices within fibers, which can then be woven into fabrics.

Researchers have used a chemical process discovered decades ago to make the linkages between covalent organic frameworks much sturdier.

A new method allows optical fibers to identify the material they are in contact with by using a light beam within the fiber to generate a sound wave.

Researchers have developed magnetic elastomeric composites that move in different ways when exposed to light, such as bending, twisting and expanding.
