Deterministic inverse design of Tamm plasmon thermal emitters with multi-resonant control

Nature Materials, Published online: 21 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-01094-0Tamm plasmon thermal emitters can provide low-cost, efficient mid to long infrared emission, but have been limited by a challenging design. Here the authors apply an inverse design protocol to demonstrate tailorable multi-band emission on CdO films.

High-performance thermoelectrics and challenges for practical devices

Nature Materials, Published online: 21 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-01109-wThermoelectric materials can generate energy from a heat differential. This Review provides an overview of mid- to high-temperature thermoelectrics, their application in modules, and the issues that need to be addressed to enable commercial implementation of state-of-the-art...

On-demand emission from Tamm plasmons

Nature Materials, Published online: 21 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-01128-7Tamm plasmon thermal emitters can provide efficient infrared emission, but are limited by design complexity. Now, the inverse design of Tamm modes facilitated by CdO films on aperiodic dielectric reflectors enables emission with an on-demand spectrum.

Microtubules tune mechanosensitive cell responses

Nature Materials, Published online: 18 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-01108-xSubstrate-rigidity-dependent microtubule acetylation is now shown to be triggered by mechanosensing at focal adhesions, and in turn controls the mechanosensitivity of Yes-associated protein (YAP) translocation, focal adhesion distribution, actomyosin contractility and...

Three-dimensional atomic packing in amorphous solids with liquid-like structure

Nature Materials, Published online: 18 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-01114-zAtomic electron tomography is used to determine the three-dimensional atomic structure of monatomic amorphous solids with liquid-like structure, which is characterized by the existence of pentagonal bipyramid networks with medium-range order.

Mechanotransduction mediated by microtubules

Nature Materials, Published online: 18 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-01120-1Integrin-mediated substrate-rigidity sensing triggers microtubule acetylation, modulating mechanosensitive cellular responses and focal adhesion dynamics, subsequently promoting actomyosin organization and collective cell migration.
