The Nobel Prize for Physics 2016 has been divided, one half awarded to David J Thouless, the other half jointly to F Duncan M Haldane and J Michael Kosterlitz "for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter".
(with movie) Researchers have visualized the quantum propagation of a charge at the site of injection from a scanning tunnelling microscope for the first time, offering a better understanding of how these charges (electrons or holes) propagate.
Material made from two types of lutetium iron oxide could be used in ultra low-power microprocessors, storage devices and next-generation electronics.
Particles less than 10 nm in diameter induce ferroptosis on their own, without the need for any conjugated cytotoxic molecules.
New device could be used as a key element in integrated circuits and next-generation computers that mimic how the human brain works.
New devices, which can carry cargo, might also be used to photocatalytically degrade organic pollutants.
(with audio) X-ray diffraction measurements provide evidence of multilayer silicene growth and highlight the important role of growth temperatures for achieving the pure silicene phase.
New optical technique could assemble nanoparticles into functional superstructures and devices.
Sensor can characterize the broadband magnetic fields produced by these devices, and so help miniaturize them further.
New fabric based on CNTs and Spandex could be used to make actuators and sensors for use in applications such as artificial muscles and smart clothing.
Cryogenic near-field infrared microscopy reveals how the electrical properties of vanadium oxide evolve as it switches from being a metal to an insulator.
(with audio) A standard silicon nanostructuring process is found to decrease not only the reflectivity but also the carrier recombination, both of which improve solar-cell efficiencies.
A collaboration of researchers has obtained nanoscale 3D images of optically dense collagen networks from the negative space excluded from the random walk of a particle in an optical trap.
Molybdenum sulphide device is on a par with silicon in terms of ON-current density.
New studies on CVD-grown material could help produce large sheets of carbon with a well-defined structure and properties for specific electronics applications.
Proposed technique could be used for cancer therapy.
New measurements on extremely fast water flow through CNTs will be important for fundamental studies in nanofluidics and for applications in desalination and water purification.
Non-toxic device could be used in battery-free electronics.
X-ray scattering and electron microscopy studies could help us better understand these technologically important new materials.
The nanostructures could be employed in a wide range of applications, such as filtration, separation and many other technologies.
