Stacking textured films on lattice-mismatched transparent conducting oxides via matched Voronoi cell of oxygen sublattice

Nature Materials, Published online: 07 December 2023; doi:10.1038/s41563-023-01746-3Depositing textured functional materials on transparent conducting oxides remains a challenge. We demonstrate the formation of a coherent interface between a set of functional oxides and fluorine-doped-tin-oxide-based transparent conducting oxide substrate despite the...

Nano-oxide networks in metallic glass nanotubes lead to superelastic properties

Nature Materials, Published online: 05 December 2023; doi:10.1038/s41563-023-01745-4Oxidation can degrade the properties and functionality of three-dimensional bulk metallic glasses. However, the formation of percolating oxide networks in metallic glass nanotubes or nanosheets can induce interesting properties, such as a recoverable strain of 10–20%...

Oxidation-induced superelasticity in metallic glass nanotubes

Nature Materials, Published online: 05 December 2023; doi:10.1038/s41563-023-01733-8Oxidation normally deteriorates the mechanical properties of metals. But it is now shown that the formation of a percolating oxide network in metallic glass nanotubes can result in an unprecedented superelasticity of 14% at room temperature.

Auxetic piezoelectric effect in heterostructures

Nature Materials, Published online: 30 November 2023; doi:10.1038/s41563-023-01736-5Piezoelectrics have longitudinal and transverse piezoelectric coefficients that are opposite in sign. Here, by tuning the interface inversion asymmetry in heterostructures, auxetic systems with positive longitudinal and transverse coefficients are realized, with expansion...
