Barack Obama's victory in the US presidential election is good news for researchers.
Does the high-temperature superconductivity observed in the newly discovered iron pnictides represent another example of the same essential physics responsible for superconductivity in the cuprates, or does it embody a new mechanism?
Externally applied pressure induces superconductivity in the layer compound 1T-TaS2. Similarities to, and differences from, other superconducting systems promise exciting future experiments on this old, but suddenly rejuvenated, compound.
The durability of glasses and minerals in water has traditionally been predicted using models that ignore the molecular details. Now the surface structure dynamics are shown to play an integral role in their aqueous corrosion.
Accordion-like honeycomb scaffolds support the formation of anisotropically contracting heart tissue in vitro, opening up possibilities in the area of cardiac tissue repair.
The tube model can explain how mutually entangled polymer chains move and interact, but it relies on the loose ends of chains to generate relaxation. Ring polymers have no ends — so how do they relax?
Nature Materials 7, 825 (2008); published online: 27 October 2008; corrected after print: 4 November 2008. In the version of this Editorial originally published online, the second sentence of the first paragraph should have referred to 'electricity' needs, and to a total area of '100 km × 100...
The prediction of structure at the atomic level is one of the most fundamental challenges in condensed matter science. Here we survey the current status of the field and consider recent developments in methodology, paying particular attention to approaches for surveying energy landscapes. We...
