Scientists grow a new challenger to graphene

Researchers have developed molybdenum di-sulphide (MoS2), a similar material to graphene that shares many of its properties, including extraordinary electronic conduction and mechanical strength, but made from a metal (in this case molybdenum combined with sulphur).

Controlling acoustic transport in hypersonic crystals

Scientists have determined that bulk coherent acoustic vibrations are heavily damped by scattering from radially aligned nanosized pores within hypersonic crystals of closely packed colloidal silica. Surface acoustic modes are much less influenced, suggesting new ways to manipulate thermal transport via phonon propagation control.

A temperature switchable nanopore membrane to regulate flow

Researchers have developed a novel membrane with highly aligned nanoscale pores that open and close in response to temperature; this highly porous, valve-like material has many potential filtration applications, including water purification and molecular separation.
