'Women in Graphene' network launched

Graphene Week 2015 in Manchester last month saw the launch of Women in Graphene, a support network for women in graphene and related 2D materials research. As in other areas of science and engineering, women make up significant proportion of the 2D materials workforce, but they face a number of gender-specific barriers to career progression.

Ultra-thin, all-inorganic molecular nanowires

The development of metal oxide-based molecular wires is important for fundamental research and potential practical applications. However, examples of these materials are rare. Researchers now successfully created ultrathin all-inorganic molecular nanowires, composed of a repeating hexagonal molecular unit made of Mo and Te; the diameters of these wires were only 1.2 nm.

Engineers give invisibility cloaks a slimmer design

In a new study, electrical engineers have designed a cloaking device that is both thin and does not alter the brightness of light around a hidden object. The technology behind this cloak will have more applications than invisibility, such as concentrating solar energy and increasing signal speed in optical communications.
