New 2D transistor material made using precision lasers

Molybdenum ditelluride is a crystalline compound that if pure enough can be used as a transistor. It was first made in the 1960's via several different fabrication methods, but until last year it had never been made in a pure enough form to be suitable for electronics.

Pouring fire on fuels at the nanoscale

Researchers have developed a way to prevent noble metal nanoparticles from compacting, by encapsulating them individually inside a porous shell made of a metal oxide. This work has immediate applications in the field of nano-catalysis for the manufacturing of more efficient fuel cells.

A droplet's pancake bounce

Studies of the impact a droplet makes on solid surfaces hark back more than a century. And until now, it was generally believed that a droplet's impact on a solid surface could always be separated into two phases: spreading and retracting. But it's much more complex than that, as a team of researchers now reports.
