The journal Nature Communications-published study has unveiled that a group of researchers from the National University of Singapore has come up with a method by which higher yielding and larger monolayer flakes can be formed in comparison to the current method.
The chemists through the new method can chemically exfoliate molybdenum disulfide crystals in to the good quality monolayer flakes. It has been found that the novel method-produced flakes can be used to made printable solution.

High-quality x-rays are needed for an array of applications like for advanced medical imaging. These x-rays are generated through the help of synchrotron sources, which are quite expensive.
Cost is one of the factors and the other issue is that they are not widely available. There are available at selected locations across the world. Recently, a research has taken place by a group of researchers from University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
