Individual stretching of graphene layers in a van der Waals stack drastically modifies the electronic properties of the whole structure. This result opens new possibilities for the strain-engineering of 2D materials.
Three-dimensional mesoporous inverse opal TiO2 nanostructures were synthesized and efficiently transferred into the photoelectrodes of dye sensitized solar cells.

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.
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.

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.
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…).
