Surface science news

Materials Today Bio: First Articles Published

The strain created by growing 2D crystals over 3D objects can be used to tailor the crystals' optoelectronic properties.

A previously undiscovered interaction between two thin magnetic layers separated by a non-magnetic layer could lead to better data storage.

Researchers have developed a liquid mold from droplets that they can manipulate with magnets for creating lenses in various shapes and sizes.

A novel two-step, ultra-clean process for fabricating a 2D transistor separates the ‘messy’ fabrication steps from the 2D semiconductor layer.

A novel coating can promote droplet formation and shedding in low-surface-tension fluids, thereby improving heat transfer.

A new polymer coating for battery cathodes can improve the electronic and ionic conductivity of a battery while also improving its safety.

Studying mayonnaise when it spins can help characterize the interface between an elastic-plastic material and a light material under acceleration.

Now open for Original Research and Review article submission.

Calling Early Career Researchers attending ChinaNANO.

Inspired by the skin of cephalopods such as squid, engineers have developed a new composite material that can trap or release heat as desired.

A new study proposes that single photons can interact with each other on graphene surfaces, suggesting new designs for optical quantum computers.

Novel spray-on polymer coatings cause ice to fall away from large surfaces with just the force of a light breeze, or often the weight of the ice itself.

Liquid-impregnated surfaces that comprise a specially textured surface and a liquid lubricant can help thicker materials to slide without sticking.

Researchers have developed an organic cathode that dramatically improves the stability and energy density of solid-state sodium-ion batteries.

Researchers have shown that a nano-coating of boron nitride can stabilize solid electrolytes in lithium metal batteries.

Researchers have discovered why vanadium disulfide is unstable as a battery cathode material and developed a way to make it more stable.

High-quality phosphorene nanoribbons for high-speed electronics

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