Titanium oxide nanowire mask with antibacterial and antiviral properties

Researchers have identified why 'nickel-rich' battery materials become fatigued and can no longer be fully charged after prolonged use.

Ultrashort laser bursts etch metal for solar panels

By utilizing a mixture of alcohol, researchers have developed functional inks based on 2D materials that don't suffer from the coffee ring effect.

Researchers have found that cooling graphene while it is attached to a flat surface will cause it to buckle, altering its electronic properties.

Nanostructure surface displays improved anti-icing performance

Researchers have developed a method for predicting the interaction between layers of 2D materials such as graphene in a stack.

Researchers have developed a way to induce large zeolite catalyst particles to behave like nanoparticles by growing fins on their surfaces.

Through surface functionalization, researchers have managed to make a crystalline metal-organic framework behave like a porous liquid.

Researchers have developed a new spray-on method for producing clear coatings made from tin oxide that can block heat and conduct electricity.

A novel nano-structuring method allows certain layers of a material to be perforated extremely precisely while leaving other layers completely untouched.

We are excited to announce that Elsevier in collaboration with SPIE, titled Photonic Materials and Applications.

By applying a low voltage to reduce the surface tension, researchers have been able to produce streams of liquid metal at room temperature.

Adding layers of the 2D material molybdenum sulfide to molybdenum carbide allows superconductivity to occur at 50% higher temperatures.
