Advanced Materials Top 40 for May 16, 2012

by | May 16, 2012

Many new entries in the Top 40 most-read papers in Advanced Materials last week, including work on graphene, organic and oxide semiconductors, plasmonics, and nanostructures.
Advanced Materials Top 40

Lots of new entries in the Top 40 this week, but “Novel Highly Conductive and Transparent Graphene-Based Conductors” from the Craciun lab tops the chart for the second week in a row.

In addition to papers on graphene, recent articles on organic and oxide semiconductors, plasmonics, and nano structures round out the top ten.

Two articles from the Whitesides lab feature in the Top 40: “Paper-Based, Capacitive Touch Pads” moves up 12 spots from last week, while the evergreen guide to “Writing a Paper” is number 24 again this week.
