An international team of scientists, including J. D. Burton and Evgeny Tsymbal, has discovered what they called an intriguing and entirely unexpected phenomenon at the surface of a transition metal oxide material. Such materials serve as a hotbed for electrochemical applications like solid fuel cells and oxygen sensors, as well as having potential applications in future electronic devices.  UNL Today reported on the article published in the July 24, 2014, issue of Nature Communications.
