After over 15 years of producing research news and information on nanotechweb.org, we have now integrated our coverage of nanoscience and technology into the brand-new Physics World site. You'll find all the coverage you have enjoyed on nanotechweb.org in Physics World's dedicated section on materials, along with news about other key topics in materials science and technology.

As the editor responsible for the materials section, you can be sure that I will continue to provide exclusive news updates and in-depth coverage of the most significant research and technology developments. But the new Physics World site will make it easier for you to find and enjoy the most relevant stories, and its mobile-friendly design will enable you to read our content on whatever device you happen to be using. You'll also be able to keep up-to-date with what's happening in other research fields, and hopefully to find new connections that might advance your own work.

You'll be able to find all our 2018 content on Physics World, and the rest of the archive will be moved in the near future. If you subscribe to our weekly e-mail newsletter, look out for a new-look materials newsletter that will be sent to you from Physics World.

I'm excited to be joining the award-winning team of reporters and editors from Physics World, and I'll continue to work alongside our new network of student contributors. We are all committed to making Physics World the number-one science news destination for scientists and interdisciplinary researchers working in materials science and technology.

We are keen to hear your feedback about the new website. Contact us at pwld@iop.org to let us know your views.
