Optical materials news, December 2018

By patterning and then shrinking a polymer scaffold, researchers have come up with a way to fabricate nanoscale, 3D objects of nearly any shape.

Light-emitting nanocrystals stimulate brain-like computing

Conventional computers could be replaced by massively parallel, low energy, more intelligent brain-like processors using artificial synaptic devices

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

By adding sodium to a lead-free all-inorganic perovskite, physicists have produced a single material that can produce white light.

Scientists have used magnetic fields to create liquid crystal elastomers that can move in any direction in response to multiple types of stimuli.

Circularly polarized light delivered at a particular angle to C-shaped gold nanoparticles produced a plasmonic response unlike any discovered before.

bridging the gaps between aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes with metal atoms boosts electrical conductivity in a new direction
