In 2004 a new era in material science was opened: the era of graphene or, more generally, of two-dimensional materials. Graphene is the strongest and the most stretchable known material, it has the record thermal conductivity and the very high mobility of charge carriers. It demonstrates many interesting fundamental physical effects and promises a lot of applications, among which are conductive ink, terahertz transistors, ultrafast photodetectors and bendable touch screens. In 2010 Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene". The two volumes Physics and Applications of Graphene - Experiments and Physics and Applications of Graphene - Theory contain a collection of research articles reporting on different aspects of experimental and theoretical studies of this new material.
This textbook is written for researchers who have chosen to study an area that appeals to them and one in which they show a genuine interest. It is targeted together to form the knowledge pathway to obtain an advanced polymeric research in polymer thin film.

"Silver nanoparticles" is a collection of seventeen chapters written by experts in their respective fields. These reviews are representative of the current research areas in silver nanoparticle nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Unlike many journals which focus primarily on individual classes of materials or particular applications, Soft Materials draw on all physical, chemical, materials science, and biological aspects of soft matter. Featured topics include polymers, biomacromolecules, colloids, membranes, Langmuir-Blodgett films, liquid crystals, granular matter, soft interfaces, complex fluids, surfactants, gels, nanomaterials, self-organization, supramolecular science, molecular recognition, soft glasses, amphiphiles, and foams.
This journal covers fundamental and applied research in the field of soft nanoscience, which includes polymers and colloids. This will necessarily address nanostructured polymers (e.g. block copolymers), nanocomposites, physical gels, microemulsions, surface/interface modification, new processes (e.g. electrospinning/spraying), confinement effects, the organic/biological interface, and responsive/functional polymers. Results may be experimental, theoretical or simulation in nature.
Swiss Nano-Cube is the national knowledge and education platform in Switzerland for micro and nanotechnology. It adresses teachers and students from vocational schools, secondary schools as well as higher professional schools.
