Advanced Optical Materials Issue 2 is live, with 12 papers from top research groups and covering all aspects of light–matter interactions.
University of Texas researchers develop materials that are stiff for initial implantation, and then soften to better match the mechanical properties of...
Researchers at Iowa State University demonstrate the ability to simultaneously deliver proteins and DNA into plant cells.
Hierarchical electrohydrodynamic pattern formation enables the fabrication of multiscale 3D structured arrays as SERS-active platforms.
A new type of hot electron bolometer has been developed from graphene, with great potential for sensing applications of all kinds.
A novel metal deposition-based electrochromic device can realize three optical states in a single material—transparent, mirror and black.
Fine dispersion of bulk metals appears at very high extrusion rates and pressures. This phenomenon is interesting not only for material science,...
New silica microsphere films mimic the striking color display of the Morpho butterfly, with the added advantage of material flexibility.
Padilla and co-workers give an excellent overview on metamaterial absorbers and discuss a selection of examples and related applications in this field.
The radiative emission rate of poly(3-hexylthiophene) could be greatly enhanced by integrating it into a plasmonic split-dipole nanoantenna.
