40 years ago, Tuomo Suntola and his group demonstrated the growth of ZnS thin films in alternating, saturating gas-solid reactions, paving the way for ALD.
A Chinese research team have constructed a powerful new supercapacitor using two types of graphene – composite and porous.
By using microwave CVD, high quality, single crystal diamond membranes have been epitaxially grown. The resulting material exhibits bright luminescence and good electron spin coherences times, suitable for application in quantum computing.
A simple way to identify the number of graphene sheets on a substrate, even over a large area, is shown by US researchers.
The ISI have released their 2010 impact factors – we give you the materials science breakdown.
