Three-dimensional nanolithography guided by DNA modular epitaxy

Nature Materials, Published online: 12 April 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00930-7Epitaxially grown 3D DNA masks with prescribed geometry, pitch and size improve the resolution of reactive ion etching-based nanolithography, scaling the line pitch down to 16.2 nm and the critical dimension size to 7.2 nm.

Nonlinear valley phonon scattering under the strong coupling regime

Nature Materials, Published online: 12 April 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00972-xStrong exciton–polariton coupling is leveraged as a means to open up phonon scattering channels that are otherwise weak.

Development of a photoelectrochemically self-improving Si/GaN photocathode for efficient and durable H<sub>2</sub> production

Nature Materials, Published online: 05 April 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00965-wDevelopment of efficient yet durable photoelectrodes is of paramount importance for deployment of solar-fuel production. The photoelectrochemically self-improving behaviour of a silicon/gallium nitride photocathode highly efficient for hydrogen production is now reported.

High-performance organic pseudocapacitors via molecular contortion

Nature Materials, Published online: 01 April 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00954-zPseudocapacitors exhibit charge-storage mechanisms leading to high-capacity and rapidly cycling devices. An organic system designed via molecular contortion is now shown to exhibit unprecedented electrochemical performance and stability.

Mid-infrared radiative emission from bright hot plasmons in graphene

Nature Materials, Published online: 01 April 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00935-2The optical emission of graphene under pumping with femtosecond laser pulses contains a strong component linked to plasmon emission from the hot electrons in the system.

Hot plasmons make graphene shine

Nature Materials, Published online: 01 April 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00952-1Bright hot plasmon emission is observed in graphene due to the ultrafast relaxation of hot carriers that were excited by femtosecond laser pulses of visible light.

Skin-deep experiences

A steady approach

Nature Materials, Published online: 26 March 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00982-9From the discovery of the Seebeck effect in the nineteenth century to its application in the latest space probes, thermoelectrics have carved out a niche for reliable applications.

MAP-ing a way towards tissue repair

Nature Materials, Published online: 26 March 2021; doi:10.1038/s41563-021-00963-yA microporous annealed particle biomaterial has been developed to induce an immune response that can enhance wound healing and tissue repair.
