The final review in my round-up of the year so far discusses from both a theoretical and experimental point of view the search and properties of nodal topological superconductors.
In the penultimate post of the series I look at a review discussing the state of art of nanopores for cheaper and faster DNA sequencing techniques.
In my fourth post I look at the rise of 2D materials and one of the exciting alternatives to graphene.
In the third post celebrating some of the diverse and engaging topical reviews published in JPCM this year, I join the search for new materials.
In the second part of my mid-year topical review round-up I look at a review by David Tománek who examines the many challenges researchers face when taking the exceptional graphene and its extraordinary electronic and thermal properties from the 2D into the 3D world of devices and applications.
In this summary of Christelle N Prinz’s topical review you can find out what happens when a nanowire meets a living cell and the challenges facing researchers trying to improve and expand the use of these nanostructures in biomedical applications.
Mysterious forces, cooking majoranas and a systematic approach to predicting the piezoelectric properties of materials all feature in JPCM LabTalks. Come find out more.
Silicene, often seen as graphene’s silicon counter-part is the latest 2D synthesised crystal to receive the attention of the material and condensed matter communities. This week’s image comes from work by C Grazianetti et al 2015 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 27… Read More ›
