A self-powered sensor made from plants

The story of Qi Chen's research is full of serendipity. In the first year of her Ph.D., she was hanging out with friends at the University's Zernike campus, discussing the topics of their research. Chen told them she was ...

The first organic oscillator that makes catalysis swing

Oscillating chemical systems are present at nearly every popular chemistry exhibition—especially the ones that display striking color changes. But so far there are very few practical uses for these types of reactions beyond ...

Exploring the properties of very thin hafnium dioxide

The chemistry of hafnium dioxide (known as hafina) is rather boring. Yet, the behavior of ultrathin layers that are based on this material is very interesting: they can be used as non-volatile computer memory through the ...

Producing large, clean 2D materials made easy: Just 'KISS'

Ever since the discovery of the two-dimensional form of graphite (called graphene) almost twenty years ago, interest in 2D materials and their special physical properties has skyrocketed. Famously, graphene was produced by ...
