In news:

New powders, process modeling methods and development of near-net-shape manufacturing methods are leading the way to wider use of rhenium and rhenium alloy components.

In science:

We have also studied the role of quantum confinement in niobium and rhenium disulfides and if their band gaps can be tuned by changing the size of the material.
How does quantum confinement influence the electronic structure of transition metal sulfides TmS2
The KATRIN experiment at Karlsruhe is planning to improve the measurements by one order of magnitude [KATRIN] and similar sensitivity could be achieved using Rhenium decay [MARE].
Future neutrino oscillation facilities: physics priorities and open issues
Much larger enantiomer shifts, in the range of several Hz, have recently been predicted for some rhenium and osmium complexes and these may be observable using supersonic beams.
Preparation and manipulation of molecules for fundamental physics tests
Our attention has been attracted by rhenium borides with the structure different from that of the simple layered diborides, in particular from MgB2 .
Superconductivity in the Re-B system
The samples of rhenium diborides were synthesized by heating of rhenium with amorphous boron at temperatures from 950 to 1000◦C in an inert atmosphere.
