Modeling crystal behavior—toward answers in self-organization

The electrical and mechanical responses of crystal materials, and the control of their coupled effect, form one of the central themes in material science. They are vital to applications such as ultrasonic generators and non-volatile ...

Physicists study complex magnetism in a rare earth compound

Dysprosium germanide (DyGe3) is a silver-white compound that forms refractory oxides that are almost insoluble in water. In a recent study, scientists applied the pressure of eight GPa to obtain polycrystal samples of dysprosium ...

A hydrogen sensor that works at room temperature

Researchers at TU Delft have developed a highly sensitive and versatile hydrogen sensor that works at room temperature. The sensor is made of a thin layer of a material called tungsten trioxide.
