Surface science news, November 2018

Physicists have found the first evidence for a 2D material that can become a magnetic topological insulator even when it is not placed in a magnetic field.

A silicon photonic crystal with topological geometry can transmit light round corners with virtually no loss at smaller scales than ever before.

Liquid crystals can template the formation of arrays of polymer nanofibers to produce coatings that are sticky, repellent, insulating or light emitting.
