Physics World Focus On Nanotechnology 2014

Reaping the benefits of nanomaterials

Physics World 2014 Focus on Nanotechnology

Welcome to this focus issue of Physics World, which contains our pick of some of the best recent advances in nanoscience and technology. It includes a special review of the fast-growing field of 2D materials and a report about a new project to develop an alternative to CMOS transistors based on nanoscale piezoelectrics.

We survey the potential of water-repellent nanocoatings and hear about a new project at Lund University aimed at nanomaterials for cleaner energy. Finally we look back on 25 years of the journal Nanotechnology, which helped kick-start the nano revolution.
