Twisted-graphene model exhibits complex electronic behavior

 Nanotechnology News
 09 August 2022
A pair of researchers, one with Peking University, the other with Princeton University, has found that the parameters of twisted-graphene's excitation spectra correspond directly to attributes of the heavy fermion model. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, Zhi-Da Song...

Graphene oxide membranes reveal unusual behaviour of water at the nanoscale

 Nanotechnology News
 05 August 2022
Do more pores in a sieve allow more liquid to flow through it? As material scientists have uncovered, this seemingly simple question may have an unexpected answer at the nanoscale—and it could have important implications in the development of water filtration, energy storage and hydrogen production....

Data-driven discovery of NbOI2 as a high performance layered piezoelectric

 Nanotechnology News
 05 August 2022
Piezoelectric materials can convert mechanical energy to electrical energy, and vice versa. In recent years, there has been growing interest in the search for two-dimensional (2D) layered piezoelectrics. Such layered van der Waals piezoelectrics are particularly useful for niche applications such as...
