- The Adaptive Interfacial Assemblies Towards Structuring Liquids program at MSD has discovered a simple way to form stabilized droplets in a variety of structures.
- The Van der Waals Heterostructures program at MSD has reported the first experimental discovery of the chirality of phonons that intrinsically consist of atomic rotation
- A photovoltaic glass that is also reversibly thermochromic is a green technology researchers have long worked toward, and now, scientists in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Materials Sciences Division have demonstrated a way to make it work.
- MSD's Center for Computational Study of Excited-State Phenomena in Energy Materials (C2SEPEM), has solved a mystery that could lead to gains in efficiency for organic solar cells
- The Ultrafast Materials Science program at MSD has used ultrashort terahertz pulses to track the crystal distortions during melting of stripes in a correlated oxide, exposing time-delayed interactions underlying atomic-scale patterns
Ligand Mediated Transformation of Cesium Lead Bromide Perovskite Nanocrystals to Lead Depleted Cs4PbBr6 Nanocrystals
The Physical Chemistry of Inorganic Nanostructures program at MSD has discovered a ligand mediated transformation of pre-synthesized CsPbBr3 nanocrystals (NCs) to a new type of lead−halide depleted perovskite derivative NC, namely Cs4PbBr6.
