Towards zero-threshold optical gain using charged semiconductor quantum dots

Blocking band-edge absorption of compositionally graded quantum dots with suppressed Auger recombination by pre-existing electrons allows for demonstrating near-zero-threshold optical gain and amplified spontaneous emission at sub-single-exciton pump levels.

DNA nanotechnology: On-command molecular Trojans

Lipid-motif-decorated DNA nanocapsules filled with photoresponsive polymers are capable of delivering signalling molecules into target organisms for biological perturbations at high spatiotemporal resolution.

Emulsions: Simple shaking yields bicontinuity

Nature Nanotechnology. doi:10.1038/nnano.2017.201 Author: Ali Mohraz A macroscopically homogeneous emulsion with bicontinuous microstructure is created by simple shaking of a mixture containing polymers, nanoparticles and two immiscible fluids.

Single-molecule DNA sequencing: Getting to the bottom of the well

Nature Nanotechnology. doi:10.1038/nnano.2017.205 Author: Hagan Bayley Large DNA molecules are rapidly loaded into nanoscale wells from dilute solution for single-molecule sequencing.
