Do butterflies make you relax?
Recent advances by scientists representing 4 national labs, 3 countries and 4 universities are helping to answer long-held questions about a technologically important class of materials called relaxor ferroelectrics, which are often lead-based.
Ruling out Weyl points in MoTe2
Sometimes the hunt for new kinds of fundamental particles doesn't take place inside high-energy particle colliders, but rather in the low-energy degrees of freedom of exotic quantum materials.
Improving HOIP solar cells by controlling structural instabilities
Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) have become the most promising next generation solar cell material due to inexpensive processing and high efficiency.
Real-time observation of nanowire lithiation for energy storage
Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) can store energy from alternative intermittent sources via chemical reactions, for later use in electronics, transportation, and grid load leveling.
