Perspectives on the materials research landscape

Two new reports, now available for download.

Researchers have come up with a way for growing nanowire networks in a highly controlled and fully reproducible manner on silicon semiconductors.

A boost of vitamin C can help small gold nanorods grow into long gold nanowires for use in sensing, diagnostic and imaging applications.

By integrating a microfluidic chamber with 3D laser lithography, scientists produced a system for printing tiny structures from different materials.

Scientists have trapped electrons in defects on sheets of hexagonal boron nitride and used their interaction with light to probe their quantum states.

Scientists have enhanced the catalytic activity of plasmonic nanoparticles by finding a way to encapsulate them in a metal-organic framework.
