Issue 13/2009: Midway through

With this issue, we are midway through our ten-year anniversary celebrations. Read our editorial to find out more about the highlights so far and the exciting events still to come. One of the good news this year is the increase of our impact factor to 3.636. W. G. Stock discusses the pros and cons of the impact factor in his Essay.

The complex surface chemistry of quantum dots (QDs) gives rise to photophysical phenomena that can be detrimental to imaging. However, as explained in the Review by S. F. Lee and M. A. Osborne, recent developments are promising to minimize these effects while applications that exploit them are coming to the fore. In their Highlight, M. Bauer and H. Bertagnolli discuss new advances in the development of real-time X-ray absorption spectroscopy. In the Communications section, C. Flors et al. describe a simple and convenient way to image DNA topology with super-resolution. N. Ballav, T. Jung et al. present a new method for the fabrication of self-assembled monolayers based on multicomponent molecular gradients. In an article, Li et al. discuss the spectroscopic characteristics of carbon nanotubes produced by different methods. R. Tannenbaum, E. Lifshitz et al. present the results of their investigation of the optical and magnetic properties of a hydrogen-linked conjugate nanostructure containing superparamagnetic nanoparticles and nanocrystal quantum-dot chromophores.
