STM sees many-body effects Jan 23, 2015

Researchers succeed in directly imaging how electrons interact with each other in a single molecule.

Technology update

QDs couple to PRCs

Plasmonic ring cavities could be good alternatives to the widely used “dimer” or “bowtie” nanoantenna structures as possible light emitting sources in all-optical chip circuits.

Hedgehog particles break the rules

Spiky structures dissolve in both hydrophobic and hydrophilic solvents – without being “chemically camouflaged”.

Triggering mineralization Nature’s way

In situ electron microscopy reveals the role acidic polymers play in allowing living organisms to form minerals.

Porphyrins split water using red light

Molecules could help in the development of low-cost artificial photosynthetic systems that can produce hydrogen fuel in a renewable way.

MRS Fall 2014

We pick out some of the highlights from MRS Fall 2014.

Upconversion: When two wrongs make a right

Upconversion anti-Stokes processes allows emitted photons with higher energy than the energy of the incident photons, which may greatly benefit photovoltaic and photocatalysis technologies.
