The next generation of electronic devices, shape-reconfigurable electronics, show great promise beyond flexible electronics, which can be deformed into 3D curvilinear shapes by passive mechanical strain.
Researchers from Monash University have unlocked fresh insights into the behaviour of quantum impurities within materials.
The global sustainability crisis is caused by a clean water supply-demand imbalance. According to The United Nations World Water Developments Report 2023, water scarcity affects 2–3 billion people.
Digital Surf today announced the release of the tenth major version of the company’s renowned Mountains® software analysis platform for surface metrology & microscopy, trusted by 50+ leading instrument manufacturers and 22,000+ users.
Ferroelectric materials have been studied extensively since their discovery more than a century ago because of their numerous uses in everything from data storage to sustainable energy sources.
The strength of 2D materials has proven to be challenging to harness, despite being among the world’s strongest materials.
A new process that lets scientists chemically cut apart and stitch together nanoscopic layers of two-dimensional materials - like a tailor altering a suit - could be just the tool for designing the technology of a sustainable energy future.
2D monolayer nanosheets composed of layered perovskite come with several attractive properties. But, it has been challenging to build them with tunable bandgaps in the visible region with no addition of oxygen defects.
A recent study published in the journal Nature Communications focuses on how protons move in the confined water films between MXene layers, which enables charge transportation. The findings from this study could help to improve the performance of MXenes as energy storage materials.
A property of ferroelectric 2D materials has been disclosed by the materials scientist Boris Yakobson of Rice University and his collaborators. This property could be used as a feature in future devices.
