Combined Spectrometer / Microscope 

Time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy is a valuable tool for investigating excited state dynamics in semiconductors. By interfacing a spectrometer like the FluoTime 300 with a microscope such as the MicroTime 100, one can easily record time-, space-, and spectrally resolved luminescence spectra.

Review Articles


Paving the way to single-molecule protein sequencing    pp786 - 796
Laura Restrepo-Pérez, Chirlmin Joo & Cees Dekker

Dekker et al. review protein sequencing at the single-molecule level, an entirely new technique for which various approaches including sequencing using fluorescence, nanopores and tunnelling currents are discussed.




Fast thermal relaxation in cavity-coupled graphene bolometers with a Johnson noise read-out    pp797 - 801
Dmitri K. Efetov, Ren-Jye Shiue, Yuanda Gao, Brian Skinner, Evan D. Walsh et al.

A graphene–hBN heterostructure integrated onto a photonic crystal cavity shows enhanced bolometric response owing to improved light absorption and ultrafast thermal relaxation time.



Metallic supercurrent field-effect transistor    pp802 - 805
Giorgio De Simoni, Federico Paolucci, Paolo Solinas, Elia Strambini & Francesco Giazotto

A superconducting field-effect transistor was demonstrated with a structure made of different Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer superconductors.



Nanogap near-field thermophotovoltaics    pp806 - 811
Anthony Fiorino, Linxiao Zhu, Dakotah Thompson, Rohith Mittapally, Pramod Reddy et al.

The power output of a thermophotovoltaic device featuring an emitter and a photovoltaic cell increases by more than an order of magnitude when the gap size between the emitter and the cell is reduced to the nanoscale.



Graphene quantum dots prevent a-synucleinopathy in Parkinson's disease    pp812 - 818
Donghoon Kim, Je Min Yoo, Heehong Hwang, Junghee Lee, Su Hyun Lee et al.

Graphene quantum dots inhibit the formation of alpha-synuclein fibrils and induce their dissociation in vitro, and display neuro-protective properties in in vivo models of Parkinson's disease, with no appreciable long-term toxicity.




Colloidal nanoelectronic state machines based on 2D materials for aerosolizable electronics    pp819 - 827
Volodymyr B. Koman, Pingwei Liu, Daichi Kozawa, Albert Tianxiang Liu, Anton L. Cottrill et al.

Colloidal state machines, composed of 2D nanoelectronics grafted onto submillimetre-sized particles, act as autonomous electronic circuits capable of logical operation and information storage.



Tailoring sample-wide pseudo-magnetic fields on a graphene–black phosphorus heterostructure    pp828 - 834
Yanpeng Liu, J. N. B. Rodrigues, Yong Zheng Luo, Linjun Li, Alexandra Carvalho et al.

Pseudo-Landau levels in strained graphene modify not only the local density of states, but also the transport through a Hall bar device.



High Purcell factor generation of indistinguishable on-chip single photons    pp835 - 840
Feng Liu, Alistair J. Brash, John O'Hara, Luis M. P. P. Martins, Catherine L. Phillips et al.

Exploiting both pulsed resonant excitation and a large Purcell enhancement, a single quantum dot coupled to a photonic crystal nanostructure can deterministically produce highly indistinguishable single photons for on-chip quantum optical applications.



Surface chemistry and buried interfaces in all-inorganic nanocrystalline solids    pp841 - 848
Emilio Scalise, Vishwas Srivastava, Eric Janke, Dmitri Talapin, Giulia Galli et al.

An integrated theoretical and experimental approach characterizes buried interfaces in nanocrystal-in-glass systems at the atomistic level, revealing how matrix density and specific defects may be designed to attain desirable electronic and transport properties.



Dissipative adaptation in driven self-assembly leading to self-dividing fibrils    pp849 - 855
Esra te Brinke, Joost Groen, Andreas Herrmann, Hans A. Heus, Germán Rivas et al.

Direct observation of noble metal nanoparticles transforming to thermally stable single atoms    pp856 - 861
Shengjie Wei, Ang Li, Jin-Cheng Liu, Zhi Li, Wenxing Chen et al.

Pd, Pt and Au nanoparticles are encapsulated in ZIF-8. The progressive atomic dispersion of these PGM atoms as single sites in the N-doped carbon derived from ZIF-8 pyrolysis is observed.
