Ptychography allows 3D imaging of stressed materials

Ptychography allows 3D imaging of stressed materials
Everyone reacts differently under stress—even the relatively orderly atoms in a crystal. If scientists could get a clear picture of how planes of atoms shift and squeeze under stress, they could make use of those properties to provide emerging technologies, like nanoelectronics and next-generation semiconductor components, with extra speed or functionalities. However, creating this picture requires new techniques for imaging atoms in materials and their behavior in different environments.

Flexible ferroelectrics bring two material worlds together

Flexible ferroelectrics bring two material worlds together
Until recently, "flexible ferroelectrics" could have been thought of as the same type of oxymoronic phrase. However, thanks to a discovery by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with researchers at Northwestern University, scientists have pioneered a class of materials with advanced functionalities that moves the idea from the realm of irony into reality.

Machine learning enables predictive modeling of 2D materials

Machine learning enables predictive modeling of 2D materials
Machine learning, a field focused on training computers to recognise patterns in data and make new predictions, is helping doctors more accurately diagnose diseases and stock analysts forecast the rise and fall of financial markets. And now materials scientists have pioneered another important application for machine learning—helping to accelerate the discovery and development of new materials.

Diamond can be useful material for growing graphene

Diamond can be useful material for growing graphene
A team led by Materials Scientist Anirudha Sumant with the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory's Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) and Materials Science Division, along with collaborators at the University of California-Riverside, has developed a method to grow graphene that contains relatively few impurities and costs less to make, in a shorter time and at lower temperatures compared to the processes widely used to make graphene today.

Water helps biofibres to capture sunlight

Water helps biofibres to capture sunlight
When it comes to water, some materials have a split personality - and some of these materials could hold the key to new ways of harnessing solar energy. These small assemblies of organic molecules have parts that are hydrophobic, or water-fearing, while other parts are hydrophilic, or water-loving. Because of their schizoid nature, micelles organise themselves into spheres that have their hydrophilic parts turned out while their hydrophobic parts are shielded inside.
