- Research within MSD PI Jeffrey Long’s group created a material that can absorb carbon monoxide far better than other materials
- The Ultrafast Materials Science program at MSD has used picosecond perturbation of chemical potential to show how the pseudogap (PG) state of cuprate superconductors inverts the density of states
- A joint Berkeley Lab/SLAC team, including researchers from MSD's Nonequilibrium Magnetic Materials program, has measured the fluctuations in magnetic structures, called skyrmions, with billionth-of-a-second resolution - 1,000 times better than had been possible before.
- The Inorganic/Organic Nanocomposites program at MSD has demonstrated that a monolayer 2D capping layer with high Young’s modulus effectively suppresses dewetting of underlying polymer, metal, and organic semiconductor thin films
- 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.
High-Throughput Screening of Inorganic Compounds for the Discovery of Novel Dielectric and Optical Materials
The Materials Project For Functional Electronic Materials Design program at MSD has created the largest data set of calculated complete dielectric properties using high throughput first principles-modeling.
