Oxide materials, and more specifically, multicomponent oxide materials, have been widely explored in thin-film technology, being the indium-based materials very common. For example, conductive indium-tin oxide (ITO) or semiconductive indium-gallium-zinc oxide (IGZO) are key-materials in billion-dollar industries

Metal nanoparticles wire up nanowires for better battery materials

New materials are making advancements in higher power, longer life and faster charging batteries a reality. These improvements have been driven by the uptake in electric vehicles and a host of other applications that require long life

Atomic wires of carbon: present status and perspectives

Carbon is all around us in different forms ranging from molecules to solids, minerals and nanostructures. Organic chemistry classifies alkanes, alkenes and alkynes hydrocarbons according to the different hybridization state of carbon atoms (sp3, sp2 and sp1,
