Researchers integrate energy absorbing metal hollow spheres into a wire-woven bulk Kagome structure. These hybrids show an outstanding energy absorption capability.
A coating of single-walled carbon nanotubes improves the performance of li-ion cell cathodes: They show longer lifetimes and stable capacities even at very high rates.
One of the simplest processes in nonlinear optics leading to a variety of complex physics phenomena is the mutual interaction of two counterpropagating optical beams in a medium
Aluminum clusters move along graphene tracks, controlled by applied electric currents, in work by Spanish and Dutch researchers.
How can nanomaterials make a difference in the grand challenge: efficient and green global scale production, storage and use of energy? Professor Geoffrey Ozin from the University of Toronto gives his response to this question.
Established in 1962, the Polymers Division in the Material Measurement Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will soon celebrate its 50th year as a world leader in polymers research.
A set of twelve graphene-like materials is simulated regarding their stability, structural, and electronic properties.
