Notch filtering the nuclear environment of a spin qubit   pp16 - 20
Filip K. Malinowski, Frederico Martins, Peter D. Nissen, Edwin Barnes, Łukasz Cywiński et al.
Nuclear spins in gallium arsenide produce noise at discrete frequencies, which can be notch-filtered efficiently to extend coherence times of electron spin qubits to nearly 1 ms.

Direct observation of the layer-dependent electronic structure in phosphorene   pp21 - 25
Likai Li, Jonghwan Kim, Chenhao Jin, Guo Jun Ye, Diana Y. Qiu et al.
Investigation of the electronic structure in few-layer phosphorene reveals optical transitions relevant for technologically important electronic and optoelectronic applications.

Coherent spin-exchange via a quantum mediator   pp26 - 30
Timothy Alexander Baart, Takafumi Fujita, Christian Reichl, Werner Wegscheider and Lieven Mark Koenraad Vandersypen
Two electron spins occupying the outer dots in a linear array of three quantum dots experience a coherent superexchange interaction through the empty middle dot that acts as a quantum mediator.

Tae Soup Shim, Zaki G. Estephan, Zhaoxia Qian, Jacob H. Prosser, Su Yeon Lee et al.
DNA-grafted gold nanoparticles can self-assemble into shape-changing films that are powered by DNA strand exchange reactions and have two different domains that can be independently addressed using distinct chemical signals.

Nanostructured glycan architecture is important in the inhibition of influenza A virus infection   pp48 - 54
Seok-Joon Kwon, Dong Hee Na, Jong Hwan Kwak, Marc Douaisi, Fuming Zhang et al.
6’-Sialyllactose conjugated to polyamidoamine dendrimers at a well-defined valency and spacing can circumvent drug resistance and inhibit influenza A viruses.
