Researchers discover an all-boron fullerene

Researchers have shown that a cluster of 40 boron atoms forms a hollow molecular cage similar to a carbon buckyball. It's the first experimental evidence that a boron cage structure - previously only a matter of speculation - does indeed exist.

Manipulating magnetic field effects in organic semiconductors

Researchers have have found a way to change the magnetoresistance of a thin (100 nm) organic semiconducting material by pairing it with an even thinner layer - a self-assembled monolayer - to alter its characteristics. By demonstrating that this kind of fine tuning is both straightforward and repeatable, the researchers have opened up an unprecedented level of control over materials that hold huge promise for next-generation technologies.
