Chemical trickery corrals 'hyperactive' metal-oxide cluster

After decades of eluding researchers because of chemical instability, key metal-oxide clusters have been isolated in water, a significant advance for growing the clusters with the impeccable control over atoms that's required to manufacture small features in electronic circuits.

Researchers peer into atom-sized tunnels in hunt for better battery

Battery researchers seeking improved electrode materials have focused on 'tunneled' structures that make it easier for charge-carrying ions to move in and out of the electrode. Now a team has used a special electron microscope with atomic-level resolution to show that certain large ions can hold the tunnels open so that the charge-carrying ions can enter and exit the electrode easily and quickly.

A thermoelectric material in paintable liquid form

Researchers have demonstrated a new type of high-performance thermoelectric materials that possess liquid-like properties. These newly developed materials are both shape-engineerable and geometrically compatible in that they can be directly brush-painted on almost any surface.
