Properties of MXenes
MXenes, or two-dimensional transition metal carbides and nitrides, represent a new generation of materials for energy storage, composites, photocatalysis and water purification technologies. Despite significant achievements and further promises, there is a lack of understanding of the intrinsic properties of MXenes. By studying individual flakes, we are trying to explain and further improve the remarkable properties of these materials.
A compound called titanium trisulfide could surge toward the fore of two-dimensional materials that are gaining popularity among designers of microelectronics.
The improvements in random access memory that have driven many advances of the digital age owe much to the innovative application of physics and chemistry at the atomic scale.
