27.01.2023 Our paper titled "Exploring the Nanoconfinement Effect Using 2D Capillaries" is on the front cover of the 2023 first issue. In this paper, we discuss Two-dimensional nanocapillaries assembled by van der Waals technology and how they enable experimental exploration under extreme spatial confinement. Our research into these directions will help to reveal nanoconfinement effects on molecular structure and behavior down to the atomic scale. View the article.

27.09.2022 Flavia-Alexandra Cimpean and Stephen Tipper Joined the group for MPhys project on "New materials enabled by two-dimensional reactions".
08.09.2022 Our interdisciplinary research project "van der Waals heart" is funded by Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). In this project, we will probe the electrical activity of heart cells and tissues down to the subcellular level. Better understanding of the electrical activity of healthy heart cells will help us to reveal the causes of dysfunctional heart cells and potentially guide us towards better treatment towards Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs).

A long-standing problem of observing Room Temperature Superconductivity is finally solved by a novel approach. Instead of increasing the critical temperature Tc of a superconductor, the temperature of the room was decreased to an appropriate Tc value. We consider this approach more promising for obtaining a large number of materials possessing Room Temperature Superconductivity in the near future.

"Dimensional reduction in graphite"
The quantum Hall effect is thought to exist only in two-dimensional materials. Here, transport measurements show that thin graphite slabs have a 2.5-dimensional version, with a parity effect for samples with odd and even number of layers.
Here we show that graphene-based electronic devices can perform in temperatures comparable to that of the Venus atmosphere (∼460°C). Shall we see graphene in space? How about that, @elonmusk? " Makars Šiškins, 1st author of our paper!
