Researchers developing 2-D materials similar to graphene

Chemists are working to synthesize the next generation of super materials for high-performance electronics, solar cells, photodetectors and quantum computers. While they have made progress with compound materials, they have ...

Pearly material for bendable heating elements

The iridescent shimmer of a string of pearls may one day be more than pretty adornment. Scientists now report in ACS Applied Nano Materials a hybrid material consisting of imitation pearl combined with silver nanowires that ...

Researchers produce 2-D sheets of tin atoms

The merits of graphene, a 2-D sheet of carbon atoms, are well established. In its wake have followed a host of post-graphene materials—structural analogues of graphene made of elements such as silicon or germanium.

Taking control at the junction

Fine tuning the composition of nitride alloys can further the development of optical and electronic interface devices.
