  • Interstitial oxygen conductors have the potential to enable efficient oxygen-ion transport at lower temperatures. An approach combining physically motivated structure and property descriptors, ab initio simulations and experiments is now proposed for the discovery of fast interstitial oxygen conductors.

  • Lyophilized lymph nodes are a natural scaffold to deliver chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells to tumour resection sites, where they serve as a natural T cell-supporting niche and enhance CAR T cell efficacy in reducing recurrence in preclinical tumour resection models.

  • Photolysis and ion migration under electrical bias cause intrinsic instability in halide perovskite solar cells. By harnessing materials that both capture and confine iodide and polyiodide ions at the perovskite surface, the stability of devices under ultraviolet irradiation, thermal–light conditions or reverse bias can be greatly increased.

  • Stacked atomic layers that interact via van der Waals forces offer a confined interlayer space for stabilizing unconventional materials or physical states, enabling a versatile platform for engineering structural configurations and properties at the atomic level.

  • Precision laser irradiation of liquid-crystal polymer networks with dynamic bonds enables reversible phase patterning to create multi-stimuli responsive materials towards wearable devices and information encryption.

  • Scanning tunnelling microscopy of doped RuCl3 shows distinct charge orderings at the lower and upper Hubbard bands, which can be attributed to a correlation-driven honeycomb hole crystal composed of hole-rich Ru sites and a rotational-symmetry-breaking paired electron crystal composed of electron-rich Ru–Ru bonds.
