Surface science

News
 

When heated, a novel photonic crystal appears to emit more coherent light at infrared wavelengths than can be explained by Planck's Law.

News
 

Researchers have found that crumpling graphene makes it more than 10,000 times more sensitive to DNA by creating electrical ‘hotspots’.

News
 

Researchers have shown that the crystal structure at the surface of semiconductor materials can make them behave like metals and even superconductors.

News
 

Researchers have created a new rubber-like material based on plexiglass that could act as a replacement for human tissue in medical procedures.

News
 

Researchers have shown that modifying any surface with millimeter tall peaks and valleys can reduce frost formation on that surface by 60%.

News
 

Researchers have found that small grooves in filter paper can cause single-walled carbon nanotubes to line up side-by-side in 2D films.
