Dr. Vadym Mochalin, associate professor of chemistry, describes in recently published papers how a new family of two-dimensional transition metal carbides, known as MXenes, could be used to harvest wasted frictional energy.

The paper, “Saturable Absorption in 2D Ti3C2 MXene Thin Films for Passive Photonic Diodes,” by Mochalin and Dr. S. Chertopalov, a post-doctoral associate, is published in the Jan. 15 issue of Advanced Materials, a leading international journal in materials science. The research group’s findings also were featured Jan. 12 on

Mochalin’s paper, “Metallic MXenes: A New Family of Materials for Flexible Triboelectric Nanogenerators,” is featured in the February 2018 issue of Nano Energy, and was written in collaboration with research groups from Drexel and Clemson universities.
