It is just about to open and we are excited.

Magnetic switch turns strange quantum property on and off
A research team has developed the first switch that turns on and off a quantum behavior called the Berry phase. The discovery promises to provide new insight into the fundamentals of quantum theory and may lead to new quantum electronic devices.

Scientists borrow from electronics to build circuits in living cells
Synthetic biology researchers have demonstrated a new method for digital information processing in living cells, analogous to the logic gates used in electric circuits. The circuits are the largest ever published to date in eurkaryotic cells and a key step in harnessing the potential of cells as living computers that can respond to disease, efficiently produce biofuels or develop plant-based chemicals.

One-dimensional crystals for low-temperature thermoelectric cooling
Researchers studied the thermal and electrical properties of one-dimensional crystals composed of tantalum, silicon and tellurium for thermoelectric cooling at temperatures below 250 K (-23°C). The thermoelectric characteristics of these crystals were varied at temperatures ranging from the cryogenic level of 50 K up to room temperature by doping with molybdenum and antimony. The crystals' thermoelectric power factors greatly exceeded those of conventional materials around room temperature, indicating their suitability for low-temperature applications.

Off-the-shelf, power-generating clothes are almost here
A lightweight, comfortable jacket that can generate the power to light up a jogger at night may sound futuristic, but a materials scientist could make one today. In a new paper, she and colleagues outline a way to apply breathable, pliable, metal-free electrodes to fabric and off-the-shelf clothing so it feels good to the touch and also transports enough electricity to power small electronics.

First significant examples of optical crystallography for nanomaterials
Researchers have developed a novel way to determine crystal type based on optics -- by identifying the unique ways in which these crystals absorb light.
