The concept of wireless sensor networks conjures up images of a world of ubiquitous sensing, but it requires a massive increase in the number of sensors available. Although there has been considerable activity in transducer-based 'sensor nets', there have been virtually no corresponding...
The discovery that electrons in Tl2Ru2O7 lose their three-dimensional nature at low temperatures and arrange in chains, opens up a new direction in research into transition metal oxides.
All we expect when a drop lands on a surface is to see it either spread if the surface is wettable, or sit undeformed if the surface is non-wettable. However, if the surface is hot and is textured with a sawtooth profile, we will gape at a drop springing in self-propelled motion.
The ability to access experimentally the quantum-mechanical nature of the interaction between single atomic spins opens windows onto the most fundamental magnetic phenomena.
The hoped-for enhancement of the properties of polymer–nanotube composites have remained elusive, owing in part to the difficulties in obtaining well-dispersed mixtures. A chemical modification of the nanotube surface offers a new handle for controlling the dispersion.
Nanoscale core–shell precipitates within multicomponent alloys are known to confer strength and thermal stability beyond that expected from the constituent materials. Their formation mechanism has finally been revealed to involve a combination of thermodynamic and kinetic processes.
The integration of different technological platforms is leading to multifunctional materials with an improved interface with the human body. The approach has started to pay back as applications have appeared in regenerative medicine.
