  • Simulations show that two-dimensional-material-based static random-access memory (SRAM) circuits leverage their low parasitic capacitance, counteracting performance declines due to increased interconnect resistance and potentially surpassing Si-based SRAM in terms of both performance and energy efficiency at advanced technology nodes.

  • Inactivating hyperregulated metabolic pathways in cancer is used in the clinic to slow cancer progression. Here the authors show that l-tyrosine can reactivate melanogenesis in melanoma cells, resulting in suppression of cancer growth and production of melanin, which can be used as an additional photothermal therapy agent for melanoma eradication.

  • Chiral crystals are sought after for their ability to tune the polarization of light. Now, multiwalled boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are shown to be promising chiral crystals with coherently stacked structures, wherein the component tubes display mono-chirality, homo-handedness and unipolarity. This unique architecture endows BNNTs with strong optical nonlinearity and a chiral geometry-dependent chiroptical response.

  • Combining single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) and fluorescence lifetime information inside an anti-Brownian electrokinetic (ABEL) trap makes it possible to distinguish dozens of biomolecules in a sample mixture. This method enables extensive barcoding of biomolecules with a minimal set of chemical components and opens up a path toward biomolecule quantification in complex mixtures.
