Peer Review Webinar with the Editors of Biomaterials

Live webinar - March 7th, 9 - 10 AM GMT – The nuts & bolts of Peer Review: a discussion by Biomaterials Editors Professors Pandit and Yu.

Researchers have shown experimentally how a unique form of magnetism arises in an odd class of materials called Mott insulators.

Scientists have found a way to produce and measure the properties of a single, three-atom-thick layer of tungsten ditelluride.

Researchers have discovered a ceramic material that contracts on heating by more than twice the previous record-holding material.

Researchers have found a perovskite mineral with the right properties to extract energy from multiple sources at the same time.

Using macrophages with flow cytometry, a rapid screening method can determine how medical nanoparticles interact with the immune system.

Scientists have determined the mechanical properties of a sulfide-based solid electrolyte by poking it with a sharp probe.

Unexpectedly, scientists have discovered that electrons in metallic vanadium dioxide can conduct electricity without conducting heat.

Physicists have mapped the coordinates of more than 23,000 individual atoms in an iron-platinum nanoparticle to reveal the material's defects.

Synthetic nanoparticles can achieve the same level of structural complexity, hierarchy and accuracy as biomolecules such as proteins.

New synthesis mechanism transforms bulk metal alloys directly into nanowires.

A new oxidatively-modified carbon material is highly efficient at absorbing radioactive metal cations such as cesium and strontium.

With the help of a cuprate superconductor, scientists have revealed the innate, but previously hidden, ability of graphene to act as a superconductor.
