Optical materials news, April 2019

Researchers have not only unexpectedly detected polar skyrmions in a material with reversible electrical properties, but also found that they're chiral.

3D printing in geometric designs and material composites for devices with novel optical properties

High-quality phosphorene nanoribbons for high-speed electronics

Measuring approach that characterizes materials at much smaller scales

Researchers have improved the optical properties of the 2D material molybdenum disulphide by removing defects with laser light and water.

Physicists have designed an evolutionary process that allows a wide range of nanomaterial morphologies to be synthesized from tungsten disulphide.

Scientists have not only visualized the nanoscale structures of borophene lattices, but also built theoretical models of their crystalline forms.

Artificial atoms in hexagonal boron nitride

Engineers have shown that 3D printing can be used to create metamaterials with unique microwave or optical properties.

By carefully stretching polymers like polyethylene, researchers have been able to produce colorful films with a range of heat-radiating capabilities.

A hot-drawing technique for processing plastics can create transparent polythene film that is stronger than aluminium but a fraction of the weight.

Scientists have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like fitting a model ship inside a bottle.
