Food is a fascinating and important material that requires study of the same intelectual rigour as that performed for the more usual substances reported within materials science journals. A look at some basic foodstuffs helps to identify why, and also why the science involved is intrinsically...
Experience with friction is as old as human history, but the subject remains surprisingly subtle. Now the first experimental observations of the initial fleeting instants of sliding have been made. The results have implications that range from the smallest sliding surfaces in nanomachines to...
Self-assembly of soft materials has achieved structural periodicity of tens of nanometres. Layered superlattices prepared from viruses and lipid membranes could now be used as templates for organising macromolecules.
The world of polymer science is running in 100 different directions. Some pursue the most basic chemistry and physics questions, others have immediate industrial concerns; remarkably, the end-points tend to converge.
The coupling of energy to surface-plasmons in the metal contacts of a light-emitting diode is usually considered detrimental to optical efficiency. A new study suggests that the opposite could be true.
Biological and biomimetic membranes are multiscale assemblies extending from small molecular clusters to large domains with an area of 100,000 nm2. New computer simulations give us a look into this experimental twilight zone.
