Optoelectronic materials that are capable of converting the energy of light into electricity, and electricity into light, have promising applications as light-emitting, energy-harvesting, and sensing technologies.
Scientific studies describing the most basic processes often have the greatest impact in the long run.
The speed of water flow is a limiting factor in many membrane-based industrial processes, including desalination, molecular separation and osmotic power generation.
A team of scientists led by Nanyang Technological University and Rice University in the US, has uncovered the key to the outstanding toughness of hexagonal boron nitride.
It's official: Hexagonal boron nitride is the iron man of 2D materials, so resistant to cracking that it defies a century-old theoretical description engineers still use to measure toughness.
Sensofar, a technology company specialising in the field of non-contact surface metrology, has developed a new technique for characterising the evolution of a sample’s surface topography with temperature using the ...
An international team with researchers from the University of Bayreuth has succeeded for the first time in discovering a previously unknown two-dimensional material by using modern high-pressure technology.
An international research team including scientists from the University of Bayreuth has used modern high-pressure technology to successfully discover, for the first time, a previously unknown two-dimensional (2D) material.
Two-dimensional (2D) materials with a single-layer thickness retaining magnetic order in atomically thin limit began to increase their scientific and technological significance after the successful synthesis of graphene and later investigations of van der Waals materials.
Researchers have used a technique similar to MRI to follow the movement of individual atoms in real time as they cluster together to form two-dimensional materials, which are a single atomic layer thick.
