Chemists invent shape-shifting nanomaterial

Chemists have developed a nanomaterial that they can trigger to shape shift - from flat sheets to tubes and back to sheets again - in a controllable fashion. The nanomaterial holds potential for a range of biomedical applications, from controlled-release drug delivery to tissue engineering.

Inducing transparency by kicking the atoms

All photo-electronic devices work on the basis that the materials inside them absorb, transmit and reflect light. Understanding the photo properties of a specific material at the atomic level not only helps to decide what material to choose for a given application but also opens up ways to control such properties on demand.

Nanochemistry: Layers step out of line

If the stacking structure of a Covalent Organic Framework is even slightly shifted, its properties change dramatically. This happens more often than assumed, as chemists were able to demonstrate.

Convex to concave: More metasurface moire results in wide-range lens

The odd, wavy pattern that results from viewing certain phone or computer screens through polarized glasses has led researchers to take a step toward thinner, lighter-weight lenses. The pattern is made by laying one material with opaque and translucent parts at an angle over another material of similar contrast.

How to untie magnetic nano-knots

Scientists have discovered that skyrmions untie themselves in two distinct ways. Using a magnetic field, the probability to succeed in untying can be varied by up to a factor of 10,000. This insight might be groundbreaking for future information processing with skyrmions.
