Producing chirality, a property found throughout nature, through large-scale self-assembly could lead to applications in sensing, machine perception and more.
“Transformer” pinwheels offer new twist on nano-engineered materials
Understanding a cerium quirk could help advance grid-scale energy storage
It turns out cerium flow batteries lose voltage when electrolyte molecules siphon off energy to form different complexes around the metal.
Heat-resistant nanophotonic material could help turn heat into electricity
The key to beating the heat is degrading the materials in advance.
