Horiba Features MXenes in Their Science in Action Series

DNI member, Asia Sarycheva, has established a good contact and successful research collaboration with Horiba, which led to Horiba’s interest to MXenes and the company featured MXenes in their popular Science in Action series. The story is loosely  based on Professor Yury Gogotsi’s interview.

High Electrical Conductivity and Breakdown Current Density of Individual Monolayer Ti3C2Tx MXene Flakes

Congratulations to Adam Goad who co-authored an important paper with Alex Sinitskii’s group. The paper shows a remarkable combination of high electrical conductivity and breakdown current density of single-layer MXene flakes (better than copper and other 2D materials). This study conducted by Alexey Lipatov and his UNL colleagues on samples prepared by Adam extends applications of MXenes to interconnects in microelectronics. The excellent properties of Ti3C2 reported in this study were enabled by the use of the highly stoichiometric MXene produced by the method developed by Tyler. Read our article, which will appear in the April issue of Matter:
