New ternary MAX phases exhibit ferromagnetic behavior close to room temperature and may be suitable for designing 2D monolayers with magnetic applications.
On May 22nd, Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology and Engineering (NIMTE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), held the 2021 Public Science Day, attracting nearly 700 teachers and students from more than ten primary and middle schools in Ningbo.
Scientists in China and Germany have designed an artificial color-changing material that mimics chameleon skin, with luminogens (molecules that make crystals glow) organized into different core and shell hydrogel layers instead of one uniform matrix. The findings, published May 6 in the journal Cell Reports Physical Science, demonstrate that a two-luminogen hydrogel chemosen...
