If Europe wants to be at the forefront of scientific research it is essential for governments to find the means to improve collaboration and the distribution of innovation across Europe.
Alain Fuchs is the director of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris and in January was appointed the new president of the French National Centre for Scientific Research, CNRS. Nature Materials asked him about his research and his new role.
Radionuclides encapsulated within carbohydrate-functionalized carbon nanotubes set new records for in vivo radiodosage, while demonstrating zero leakage of isotopes to high-affinity organs, such as the thyroid.
Nitrogen-vacancy centres in diamond are very promising candidates for quantum information processing in the solid state. However, a search to find defects with even more potential has now been launched.
Organic light-emitting field-effect transistors surpass the external quantum efficiency of analogous organic light-emitting diodes.
Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) show good compressive mechanical properties that make them attractive for applications. However, BMGs tend to fail under tensile strain. Through secondary phases these problems can be remedied to some degree. A mechanism is now demonstrated where BMGs show enhanced...
Solid-state materials showing giant caloric effects near room temperature could provide an alternative to cooling devices based on gas cycles. Strong emphasis has so far been dedicated to caloric effects induced by a magnetic field. It is now demonstrated that a small pressure applied to the...
Quantum transport phenomena have been widely investigated in semiconducting compounds, but extending these studies to oxides is not simple owing to their low mobilities. It is now demonstrated that SrTiO3 films can be grown by molecular beam epitaxy; the films show very high electron mobility,...
