New nanowires are just a few atoms thick

A slight mismatch between the hexagonal structures of molybdenum disulfide and tungsten diselenide creates a strain that can be released by the formation of a “5|7 dislocation,” in which two hexagons collapse to form a pentagon and a heptagon. Reactions ...

A new approach to ultrafast light pulses

In this image, light strikes a molecular lattice deposited on a metal substrate. The molecules can quickly exchange energy with the metal below, a mechanism that leads to a much faster response time for the emission of fluorescent light from ...
