Graphdiyne as a functional lithium-ion storage material

Graphdiyne is as flat and thin as graphene, which is the one-atomic-layer-thin version of graphite, but it has a higher porosity and adjustable electronic properties. Researchers describe its simple bottom-up synthesis from tailor-made precursor molecules.

Laser technology: The turbulence and the comb

So-called frequency combs play a major role in laser research today. Scientists now succeeded in producing this special kind of light, using simple circular quantum cascade lasers - a result that seemed to contradict conventional laser theories completely.

Macroscopic quantum interference in an ultra-pure metal

Although the subtle laws of quantum mechanics, that is, wave mechanics, ultimately govern all the processes of electron transportelectrons in solids, their wave-like nature of the electrons is not often apparent to the casual observer. A classical picture of electrons as solid particles goes surprisingly far in explaining electric currents in metals.
