News: Complex Materials and Processing

Using nearly undetectable particles, a team of international researchers has peered into the sun’s heart and sketched the intricate chain of reactions that drive the solar furnace.
In a paper published June 30 in Nature Energy, Yueh-Lin (Lynn) Loo and her co-workers describe how they used organic semiconductors for constructing solar cells that are transparent but can be tinted to block 80% of the light under their own power.
In a paper published June 26, 2017 in Nature Chemistry, Clifford P. Brangwynne and his co-workers have described the formation of liquid droplets forming inside living cells.
