Individual stretching of graphene layers in a van der Waals stack drastically modifies the electronic properties of the whole structure. This results opens new possibilities for the strain-engineering of 2D materials. Summary : By stacking one-atom-thick sheets, like in a LEGO game, researchers ... More »
Three-dimensional mesoporous inverse opal TiO2 nanostructures were synthesized and efficiently transferred into the photoelectrodes of dye sensitized solar cells. The non-destructive integration of these nanostructures in the photoelectrodes leads after sensitization with a new purely organic dye ... More »

Telomeres, regions of the DNA (highly repetitive and therefore a priori non-coding) located on the ends of chromosomes, play an important role in cell division, carcinogenesis and aging. Their biological function can be disturbed by oxidative damage, which was thought to be solely caused by the ... More »
This study discuss the shift observed in spintronics from the current-perpendicular-to-plane geometry towards lateral geometries, illustrating the new opportunities offered by this configuration. The possibility to combine ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers allowed creating ... More »

Liquid state NMR is used to investigate surface state of CuInS2 nanocrystals (NCs). 1H and 13C NMR studies of NCs dispersed in organic solvent allowed characterizing and quantifying the ligands at the NC surface, while diffusional NMR enabled studying ligand binding dynamics.   Ternary ... More »
Magnetic tunnel junctions are the basic elements of a new class of magnetic memory called MRAM (Magnetic Random Access Memory). These are about to enter in volume production at major microelectronics foundries (Samsung, TSMC, Global Foundries…). To move towards high density memory (several ... More »
