The same ion beam approach could also improve other dielectric materials to improve energy storage, and provides researchers with a tool to repair problems in already-synthesized materials. "It would be great to see folks use these ion-beam approaches to 'heal' materials in devices after the fact if their synthesis or production process didn't go perfectly," said Kim.
