Surface science

News
 

Scientists have developed a model that draws on oxidation kinetics to explain how stress affects the formation and spread of oxide layers in alloys.

News
 

Researchers have developed a smooth, durable, clear polymer coating that swiftly sheds water, oils, alcohols and even peanut butter.

News
 

Using caffeine as a catalyst, researchers have devised a way to create gummy, biocompatible gels that could be used for medical applications.

News
 

Scientists have witnessed exotic superconductivity in the material ytterbium-bismuth-platinum that relies on highly unusual electron interactions.

News
 

Physicists have induced magnetism in platinum by applying an electric field in a paramagnetic ionic liquid, creating a switchable 2D ferromagnet.

News
 

A solid oxide protective coating for metals, when applied in sufficiently thin layers, can deform as if it were a liquid, filling any cracks and gaps.

An aluminum-based material can quickly change how it reflects heat, by smoothing or wrinkling its surface after being stretched or electrically triggered.

News
 

Using a nanoparticle 'supersoap', scientists have developed a way to print three-dimensional structures composed entirely of liquids.

News
 

When placed between the two electrodes of a lithium-metal battery, a graphene oxide 'nanosheet' can prevent the formation of lithium dendrites.
