biological molecules known as peptides can be used to synthesize photothermal Au nanoplates under mild conditions

Using a new material, researchers have created a spatial light modulator that can change its optical properties in response to electric signals.

Researchers have designed a topological insulator in which the transmission of microwave photons can survive unprecedented levels of disorder.

Researchers have developed a novel metasurface that employs deep, narrow holes, rather than very tall pillars, to focus light to a single spot.

Fabricating chalcogenide glasses as nanowires can extend their use into the visible and ultraviolet parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.

By engineering electron donor and electron acceptor materials, researchers can overcome a key loss mechanism in organic solar cells.

Colloidal crystals that mimic the nanostructure of opals can visibly and continuously document the temperature in the environment over a defined period.

A device comprising a 2D hybrid metal halide layered with a ferromagnetic metal can generate terahertz radiation from an an ultrafast spin current.
