Researchers develop a resistive random access memory device using only 2-D materials (graphene electrodes and hexagonal boron nitride insulators), and develop a complete theoretical model to describe its functioning.
Researchers have succeeded in developing an environmentally friendly ink for 3D printing based on cellulose nanocrystals. This technology can be used to fabricate microstructures with outstanding mechanical properties, which have promising potential uses in implants and other biomedical applications.
Scientists have developed a new method of characterizing graphene's properties without applying disruptive electrical contacts, allowing them to investigate both the resistance and quantum capacitance of graphene and other two-dimensional materials.
Scientists have discovered that perovskites possess two contradictory properties necessary to make spintronic devices work - the electrons' spin can be easily controlled, and can also maintain the spin direction long enough to transport information, a property known as spin lifetime.
