Boron atoms stretch out, gain new powers

Rice University simulations demonstrate 1-D material's stiffness, electrical versatility [caption id="attachment_11442" align="alignnone" width="604"] A simulation of one-dimensional boron under stress shows the theoretical material changing phase from a ribbon to a chain of atoms when…

Dressing a Metal in Various Colors

DGIST research team developed a technology to coat metal with several nanometers of semiconducting materials. This technology can be applied to solar cells, wearable devices, displays, and the like. [caption id="attachment_11244" align="alignnone" width="809"] Fig. 1…

First experimental evidence of 3D aromaticity in stacked…

International collaboration led by Nagoya University uses two-dimensional antiaromatic materials to realize three-dimensional aromatic structures. [caption id="attachment_10911" align="alignnone" width="960"] Antiaromatic planar norcorrole molecules form close face-to-face stacked structures with increased aromaticity. This behavior is quite…
