Steady light from quantum dots? In their Highlight, M. Orrit and T. Basché explain how this has been achieved. The Minireview by A. Schirmeisen and U. D. Schwarz covers recent advances in the study of nanoscale friction. In a Concept, R. L. McCreery discusses the mechanisms of electron transport in molecular junctions and presents possible applications to molecular memory.
In the Articles section, D. C. Lamb et al. describe a novel device that allows real-time nanomicroscopy via three-dimensional single-particle tracking. D. Tenery and A. J. Gesquiere study the structure–property relationships of blended materials by means of single-particle spectroscopy on composite nanoparticle systems. In a Communication, Kim et al. reveal the strong influence of defects on the dispersibility of nanotubes (see picture). S. Hill et al. show that the magnetization relaxation of certain single-molecule magnets does not follow a simple Arrhenius law and they propose a modified equation.
