Anna Demming reports from the Materials Research Exchange
I am materials editor of Physics World. I studied nanostructures for my PhD in the context of photonics, specifically plasmonics and scanning near-field microscopy. I was one of the few people who enjoyed writing their PhD thesis and love the opportunity to talk to researchers about their work and write about developments at the cutting edge of science and technology. In my spare time I like dance and theatre, particularly ballet.
Calculations suggest memory and learning could be mimicked by quasiparticles
Devices could someday be used in household appliances
Nanoimprint lithography offers an exact way of replicating very tiny circuits
