2009 is turning out to be an interesting year for research funding in the UK. Everyone wants the best science to be funded, but it's not clear that the proposed policy changes will achieve this.
Ever since invisibility cloaking has left the realm of fiction and been demonstrated for microwave radiation, cloaking in the visible has been the aim. Having reached the near-infrared, we might be there soon.
Bulk polycrystalline organic conductors do not behave like two- or three-dimensional materials but as one-dimensional metals.
DNA provides more than lock-and-key control of assembly. Careful engineering of hairpins and loops provides the means to control the kinetics of particle assembly, allowing structures to be 'glued' together by heating.
A renormalization group study of electric transport in nanocontacts reveals the importance of quantum correlations for achieving a startling ferromagnetic Kondo effect.
Rapid growth in nanotechnology is increasing the likelihood of engineered nanomaterials coming into contact with humans and the environment. Nanoparticles interacting with proteins, membranes, cells, DNA and organelles establish a series of nanoparticle/biological interfaces that depend on...
In multiferroics ferroelectricity and magnetism are coupled, but the coupling is often rather weak. As is now shown for a perovskite oxide, composite domain walls can lead to a strong coupling of electricity and magnetism, highlighting the importance of domain walls for practical applications...
A route connecting density functional theory and the numerical renormalization group method represents the first approach to studying atomic contacts—including magnetic elements—at an atomic level. When applied to the case of a nickel impurity in a gold nanowire, the strategy provides a clear...
