Surface science news, June 2019

A novel polymer/carbon composite matrix with lithium microparticles could enhance the capacity and safety of lithium-metal batteries.

Lanthanum strontium manganite can retain its magnetic properties in atomic layers if it is ‘sandwiched’ between layers of a different ceramic oxide.

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.
