Czech Nano Day UK The Embassy of the Czech Republic and CzechInvest would like to invite you to a nanotechnology showcase. Come on 12 June 2017 to the Residence of the Czech Ambassador in London and learn about business opportunities in the Czech nanotechnology sector. Please register at http://www.czechnanotechnology.com/nanoday/.
An open access, online-only, multidisciplinary research journal dedicated to publishing the most important scientific advances in the life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering fields that are facilitated by spaceflight and analogue platforms.
Explore the benefits of submitting your next research article.
The future of energy research is in the hands of bright and creative minds looking at challenges in new ways.
Your experience, talent, and energy will make meaningful contributions to world-scale operations and projects. We are seeking an experienced Materials Synthesis Scientist to join our Drilling Technology Research team.
Quantum computers are big news, but the quantum world can seem mysterious and confusing. In this Outline we explain the differences between classical and quantum computing, and suggest how quantum computers could transform science and technology.
An open access, online-only journal, dedicated to publishing high-quality papers that describe the significant and cutting-edge research that continues to ensure the supply of clean water to populations.

Nanomedicine: Evolution of the nanoparticle corona pp288 - 290 Marilena Hadjidemetriou and Kostas Kostarelos doi:10.1038/nnano.2017.61 Understanding how complement proteins bind to nanoparticles and participate in their surface 'corona' can provide further insight into the relevance of the protein corona concept in medicine.
Nanosystem: Programmed communication pp291 - 292 Kristiana Kandere-Grzybowska and Bartosz A. Grzybowski doi:10.1038/nnano.2016.298 Autocatalytic nanoparticles activated and deactivated by DNA 'programs' can trigger through-space molecular communication and give rise to collective particle behaviours.
Synthesis and characterization of triangulene pp308 - 311 Niko Pavlicek, Anish Mistry, Zsolt Majzik, Nikolaj Moll, Gerhard Meyer, David J. Fox and Leo Gross doi:10.1038/nnano.2016.305 A combined scanning tunnelling and atomic force microscopy approach is used to generate and characterize triangulene on various surfaces.
Fluorescent nanodiamond tracking reveals intraneuronal transport abnormalities induced by brain-disease-related genetic risk factors pp322 - 328 Simon Haziza, Nitin Mohan, Yann Loe-Mie, Aude-Marie Lepagnol-Bestel, Sophie Massou, Marie-Pierre Adam, Xuan Loc Le, Julia Viard, Christine Plancon, Rachel Daudin, Pascale Koebel, Emilie Dorard, Christiane Rose, Feng-Jen Hsieh, Chih-Che Wu, Brigitte Potier, Yann Herault, Carlo Sala, Aiden Corvin, Bernadette Allinquant, Huan-Cheng Chang, François Treussart and Michel Simonneau doi:10.1038/nnano.2016.260 Tracking fluorescent nanodiamond inside branches of neurons is a sensitive method to measure the changes in intraneuronal transport due to genetic risk factors associated with brain diseases.
npj 2D Materials and Applications is an online-only, open access journal that aims to become a top-tier interdisciplinary platform for scientists to share research on 2D materials and their applications.
Part of the Nature Partner Journals series, npj 2D Materials and Applications is published in partnership with FCT NOVA, Lisbon, with the support of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS). The journal is now open for submissions.
Opto-valleytronic imaging of atomically thin semiconductors pp329 - 334 Andre Neumann, Jessica Lindlau, Léo Colombier, Manuel Nutz, Sina Najmaei, Jun Lou, Aditya D. Mohite, Hisato Yamaguchi and Alexander Högele doi:10.1038/nnano.2016.282 Monolayer semiconductors reveal their crystal quality and valleytronic properties in two-dimensional polarimetric imaging.
Microscopic agents programmed by DNA circuits pp351 - 359 G. Gines, A. S. Zadorin, J.-C. Galas, T. Fujii, A. Estevez-Torres and Y. Rondelez doi:10.1038/nnano.2016.299 Individual particles can be programmed to chemically communicate with their neighbours, giving rise to collective behaviours such as dynamic travelling fronts and spatial pattern creation.
Real-time shape approximation and fingerprinting of single proteins using a nanopore pp360 - 367 Erik C. Yusko, Brandon R. Bruhn, Olivia M. Eggenberger, Jared Houghtaling, Ryan C. Rollings, Nathan C. Walsh, Santoshi Nandivada, Mariya Pindrus, Adam R. Hall, David Sept, Jiali Li, Devendra S. Kalonia and Michael Mayer doi:10.1038/nnano.2016.267 The zeptolitre sensing volume of bilayer-coated solid-state nanopores can be used to determine the approximate shape, volume, charge, rotational diffusion coefficient, and dipole moment of individual proteins.
In pursuit of waves p394 Nader Engheta doi:10.1038/nnano.2017.66 Passion for science and technology can be a powerful motivator to overcome hurdles, as Nader Engheta explains, recounting his own experience as an immigrant.
