An understanding of a material's microscopic architecture is important to improve its mechanical properties. Poisson's ratio, which celebrates its bicentenary this year, continues to provide a good metric for that.
Surfaces are known to act as catalysts for the nucleation of crystals. Using polymer films patterned with nanopores, it is now shown that the shape of the pores can control the kinetics of surface-induced crystal nucleation.
Inclusion of organic molecules in inorganic crystals is thought to enhance their mechanical properties, yet obtaining high occlusion levels has been a challenge. It is now shown that synthetic calcite single crystals incorporating a significant amount of copolymer micelles have mechanical...
The ability to control the nuclear spins in a semiconductor quantum dot is an important step towards a long-lived and controllable electron spin qubit.
Molecular ligands are widely used to functionalize gold nanoparticles, but their influence on the particle structure has been difficult to probe. Coherent X-ray diffraction has now reached sufficient sensitivity to resolve adsorption-induced near-surface stress in a single nanocrystal.
