Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 20 May 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0453-7 Virus nanoparticles can penetrate soil to a depth of 30 cm, thus showing potential to effectively deliver nanopesticides.
Nature Materials, Published online: 20 May 2019; doi:10.1038/s41563-019-0374-8 Non-orthogonal magnetization switching is related to the shear strain associated with ferroelectric domains, with implications for magnetoelectric devices.
Nature Materials, Published online: 20 May 2019; doi:10.1038/s41563-019-0369-5 Extreme electronic anisotropy is revealed in the high-temperature superconductor FeSe through tour de force experiments on detwinned crystals.
We report the study of nanocomposite transparent electrodes based on Aluminium doped Zinc Oxide (ZnO:Al) thin films and silver nanowire (AgNW) networks. The electrodes are fully fabricated by low-cost, open-air techniques, namely, atmospheric pressure spatial atomic layer deposition and spray coating. We sho
A team of researchers at the Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnologies (C2N, CNRS/Univ. Paris-Saclay) has experimentally achieved the coherent propagation of electrons in circuits over macroscopic distances through a novel nano-engineering strategy.

It's the age of the air purifier, checking weather apps to see air quality, and shamelessly wearing masks to protect yourself from pollution and particles. But what if your clothes changed colors to notify you of dangerous breathing conditions? Nanotechnology scientists at Tufts University in Massachusetts have developed a simple technique that might do just that. Read more at The Daily Beast.
