Ultra-thin designer materials unlock quantum phenomena

A team of theoretical and experimental physicists have designed a new ultra-thin material that they have used to create elusive quantum states. Called one-dimensional Majorana zero energy modes, these quantum states could have a huge impact ...

Nanomotors as probes to sense cancer environment

Nanomotors can swim past non-cancerous cells but adhere to the charged cancer secreted matrix in a tumor model. This can be used to localise a swarm of nanomotors near cancerous cells within a tumor Credit: Debayan Dasgupta An interdiscipli...

Three-dimensional superlattice engineering with block copolymer epitaxy

Controlling the symmetry and orientation of a BCP superlattice. (A) Schematic of the chemoepitaxy process flow. A 2D template is lithographically defined. A BCP is then spin coated onto the template. Thermal annealing enables DSA of the BCP...

Scientists find path to nanodiamond from graphene

Marrying two layers of graphene is an easy route to the blissful formation of nanoscale diamond, but sometimes thicker is better. While it may only take a bit of heat to turn a treated bilayer of the ultrathin material into a cubic lattice...
