In an article recently published in the journal Dyes and Pigments, researchers discussed the utility of photonic crystals (PC) to prepare carbon fiber substrates with structural hues.
Crystallization is a natural and industrial process that occurs at the intersection of chemistry and physics. It is responsible for the creation of snowflakes as well as certain pharmaceutical active substances.
Metals’ deformation characteristics alter dramatically at the micrometer scale: bulk materials’ smooth and continuous behavior typically becomes jerky owing to random strain bursts of varied sizes.
Master Bond EP4G-80Med is a one part epoxy designed for use in the assembly of medical devices. This system is formulated with a non-metallic, graphite filler, which leads to good thermal and electrical conductivity. It possesses a thermal conductivity of 1.44-1.73 W/(m•K) and a volume resistivity of 50-100 ohm-cm.
II‐VI Incorporated (Nasdaq: IIVI) and Element Six, both world leaders in engineered materials, today announced a strategic collaboration that will expand II-VI’s diamond platform, accelerating the development...
In an article recently published in the open-access journal Materials, researchers investigated the magnetic and crystallographic properties of an Fe monolayer (ML) deposited on a 2 ML Au/W(110) substrate by using relativistic screened Korringa–Kohn–Rostoker calculations, density functional theory (DFT), and spin-polarized low-energy electron microscopy (SPLEEM).
Francis Crick, who famously co-discovered the shape of DNA, once said: "If you want to understand function, study structure." Many decades later, this remains a tenet of biology, chemistry, and materials science.
Crystals reveal the hidden geometry of molecules to the naked eye. Scientists use crystals to figure out the atomic structure of new materials, but many can't be grown large enough. Now, a team of researchers report a new technique in the January 19 issue of Nature that can discover the crystalline structure of any material.
A group of researchers from Spain developed a quasi-3D photonic crystal-based encapsulation for cesium lead halide (CsPbX3) perovskite nanocrystals for use in optoelectronic devices.
A group of researchers have recently investigated small amounts of well-dispersed multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in a nematic liquid crystal mixture called E7 and found that MWCNTs enhanced the dielectric and electro-optical properties of E7 by 60%.
