Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 18 June 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0491-1 The combination of ferroelectrics and phase-change materials provides a route towards phase-change data storage at room temperature, without heating.
Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 17 June 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0467-1 Magneto-transport measurements on thin metallic crystals of the transition metal dichalcogenide PtSe2 show signatures of ferro- and antiferromagnetic order depending on the number of layers and first-principles calculations suggest Pt vacancies at the surface as a plausible cause.
Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 05 June 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0468-0 Discussions on agricultural nanotechnology are pervaded with conflicting accounts of public opinion. A pragmatist concept may help to explain why this is so difficult to identify.
Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 30 May 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0476-0 The development of devices that exploit the intrinsic properties of two-dimensional materials can provide opportunities for in-memory computing and area-efficient integrated circuits based on Moore's law.
Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 27 May 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0462-6 The atomic thickness of two-dimensional materials enables the realization of a small footprint transistor architecture for photoswitching logic computing in a single cell.
Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 27 May 2019; doi:10.1038/s41565-019-0465-3 A nanoporous polyimide film filled with a solid polymer electrolyte has high ionic conductivity and high mechanical strength. An all-solid-state battery made with an approximately 10-μm-thick film shows good cyclability at 60 °C and no dendrite formation.
