- The Soft Matter Electron Microscopy program at MSD has demonstrated a new approach for characterizing the vesicle membrane morphology based on low-dose cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM).
- A team of researchers led by MSD's Feng Wang has developed a simple method that could turn ordinary semiconducting materials into quantum machines – superthin devices marked by extraordinary electronic behavior.
- The Ultrafast Materials Sciences program at MSD has discovered that the presence of strong spin orbit coupling in cuprate superconductors gives rise to a new form of spin momentum locking that goes beyond the standard Rashba picture.
- The In-Situ Liquid Cell Electron Microscopy program at MSD has verified that classical dendrite growth theories are applicable to the nanoscale.
- The Magnetic Materials program at MSD has visualized magnetic ground stats and "order-by-disorder" phenomenon in nano disk arrays.
When Semiconductors Stick Together, Materials Go Quantum
The twist angle formed between atomically thin layers of tungsten disulfide and tungsten diselenide acts as a “tuning knob,” transforming these semiconductors into an exotic quantum material.
