Simultaneous imaging of ferromagnetic and ferroelectric domains

Researchers have discovered a new way to simultaneously image both the ferromagnetic and the ferroelectric domain structures of multilayer devices in which a ferromagnetic film is grown on a ferroelectric substrate. These structures have attracted significant recent interest due to their ability to efficiently use voltage to change the magnetization in low-energy magnetic devices.

Creating nanostructures using simple stamps

Nanostructures of virtually any possible shape can now be made using a combination of techniques. Especially the unique properties of so-called perovskites can be exploited further: their crystal structure is not influenced by the process.

'Stealth' nanoparticles could improve cancer vaccines

Cancer vaccines have recently emerged as a promising approach for killing tumor cells before they spread. But so far, most clinical candidates haven't worked that well. Now, scientists have developed a new way to deliver vaccines that successfully stifled tumor growth when tested in laboratory mice. And the key is in the vaccine's unique stealthy nanoparticles.
