Strong science education is an important part of any modern education. To ensure scientific progress, however, students need to aspire to academic careers.
To counter the decreasing interest in scientific studies, the PhysiScope at the University of Geneva conveys scientific excitement to teenagers by offering an entertaining and practical way to discover physics.
Anisotropic assembly of isotropic nanoparticles is observed in a polymer nanocomposite system and leads to considerable improvements in mechanical properties. The relatively simple sample preparation process means the approach could be used for large-scale manufacture of nanocomposites.
A large modulation of magnetic moments in superconductor/ferromagnet superlattices raises intriguing questions about the interaction between these competing states.
Non-toxicity in multifunctional inorganic nanoparticles is rare. However, with careful engineering of silicon-based nanoparticles they can be used in vivo as imaging and drug-delivery agents and later degraded and cleared without toxic effects.
Muon and neutron experiments on the new FeAs-based superconductors reveal phase diagrams and spin excitation modes with striking similarities to a wide range of other unconventional superconductors.
