Whether we should expand the use of nuclear energy is not the issue. Developing next-generation nuclear technology as part of a clean-energy portfolio is.
Nuclear energy offers a low-carbon footprint and less dependence on fossil fuel, but several materials challenges must be met to advance nuclear technology.
As interest in new generations of nuclear reactors is increasing worldwide, renewed research effort into new materials more tolerant to extreme conditions is crucial.
The present revival in nuclear technology is prompting concerns about its safe use. Nature Materials talks to Tomihiro Taniguchi, Deputy Director General at the International Atomic Energy Agency, responsible for nuclear safety and security.
The synthesis of chiral magnetic molecules allows the first observation of strong magneto–chiral dichroism, where unpolarized light is absorbed differently for parallel and antiparallel propagation with respect to an applied magnetic field.
Multiscale experimental and computational approaches reveal how an ancient fish protects itself with an armour of scales consisting of four different reinforcing, graded nanocomposite layers.
Oxide materials have long been known as hosts for exotic and useful physical properties. Recent advances in their design and fabrication establish the means to tailor their response for applications.
We are used to thinking that a macroscopic phenomenon can be described in terms of either classical physics or quantum mechanics. But sometimes it can be both. For example, it is shown that the linear magnetoresistance in InSb can be achieved by a classical or quantum route.
