Researchers have developed a novel method for getting thin layers of different materials, including perovskites, to self-assemble into large crystals.

Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings, operated by Penn State and Rice Universities, secures $1.5 million in Phase II funding from NSF

By applying strain to a monolayer semiconductor, researchers managed to produce chiral valley-polarized light at room temperature.

Researchers have developed a novel etching process for fabricating features and patterns on 2D materials like graphene at near atomic resolution.

Researchers have enhanced the brightness and stability of light-emitting perovskite nanocrystals by encapsulating them in metal-organic frameworks.

By combining quantum dots and gold nanoparticles with molecular glue, researchers have created a tiny camera for observing chemical reactions.

By applying mechanical strain to a 2D semiconductor, researchers were able to get it to emit light, rather than heat, with near 100% efficiency.
