Researchers grind nanotubes to get nanoribbons (w/video)

A simple way to turn carbon nanotubes into valuable graphene nanoribbons may be to grind them. The trick is to mix two types of chemically modified nanotubes. When they come into contact during grinding, they react and unzip, a process that until now has depended largely on reactions in harsh chemical solutions.

3D potential through laser annihilation

Firing pulses of a trillion x-ray photons at molecular-sized samples in time scales on the order of million-billionths of a second (femtoseconds), researchers are aiming for the Holy Grail of ultra-fast X-ray Science - single-particle 3D imaging with atomic resolution.

Investigating buried interfaces in ferroelectric materials

The nanoscale device community has shown great interest in exploiting the unique properties of ferroelectric materials for encoding information. But the circuitry for reading information stored in the polarization of these materials has prohibited its adaptation to extremely small scales. Now, researchers have developed a new technique that provides key information for an alternative decoding method, where better understanding will help to fully harness the properties of these devices.

Framework materials yield to pressure

High pressure has become an indispensable research tool in the quest for novel functional materials. High-pressure crystallographic studies on non-porous framework materials based on coordination compounds are markedly on the rise, enabling the unraveling of structural phenomena and taking us a step closer to the derivation of structure-property relationships.
