- The Physical Chemistry of Inorganic Nanostructures program at MSD has discovered ultralow thermal conductivity, comparable to their amorphous limit in single-crystalline all-inorganic halide perovskite nanowires and attributed it to a cluster rattling mechanism.
- The Nonequilibrium Magnetic Materials program at MSD has demonstrated magnetization switching of ferromagnetic films, within 7 picoseconds, via single laser shots.
- Research within MSD’s Van der Waals Heterostructures program has found an unexpected magnetic property in a 2-D material
- A team led by Ali Javey of the Materials Sciences Division has created a transistor with a working 1-nanometer gate
- Lights! Action! Photo-Activated Catalyst Grabs CO2 to Make Ingredients for Fuel
The Fractal Packing Structure in Metallic Glasses
The Mechanical Behavior of Materials program at MSD has clarified the long-standing debate over the packing structure of metallic glasses (MGs) from the perspective of fractal models.
