Two-dimensional “nanosheets” formed of bonds between metal atoms and organic molecules are considered to be appealing candidates for photoelectric conversion but tend to get corroded easily.
Tamarind is a tropical fruit consumed by people across the globe. Its shells are thrown away during food production. Tamarind shells are heavy and occupy a significant amount of space in landfills where they are disposed of as agricultural waste.
At the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ (CAS) Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS), Prof. Zhenyang Wang’s research group recently created macroscopic thick three-dimensional (3D) porous graphene films.
At Nagoya University, Japan, a research group has developed a new technique for synthesizing nanographenes, a type of nanocarbon with huge potential as a next-generation material, in a quick and efficient way.
Scientists from Osaka University, in association with the Toyo University and the Kyushu Institute of Technology, have elucidated the expression mechanism of metallic and semiconducting properties in graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) by studying the carrier transport characteristics in the field-effect transistor (FET) through a multilayer GNR channel.
Atomically thin van der Waals magnets are broadly perceived as the ubiquitously compact media for rapid data processing and next-generation magnetic data storage.
Gears and mechanical transmissions are at home in the Emilia-Romagna region, the Motor Valley of northern Italy.
Materials scientists from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) together with their collaborators have found that perovskites, a family of potential materials that could be used for making economical, high-performance LEDs and solar cells have a hitherto unused molecular component that can additionally tune the electronic property of perovskites.
A new technique to develop unique solar cells could considerably enhance their efficiency.
Two researchers from the Chemnitz University of Technology and Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden have presented a commentary on the topic “Tiny robots and sensors need tiny batteries – here’s how to do it” in the latest issue of the scientific journal, Nature.
