ChemPhysChem 11/2013: Bacterial adhesion and electron transfer
In a Review, O. Hod describes a simple geometrical parameter - the " registry index" - as a quantitative measure of the interfacial commensurability of materials. The Minireview by J. Claudon et al. shows that photonic nanowire antennas can efficiently funnel the emission of an embedded quantum light source into a directive optical beam. In the Articles section, L. Liu and X. Chen study fast ion transport and phase separation in a mechanically driven flow of electrolytes through sub-nanometer nanochannels, and in a Communication, K. Hori, K. Hashimoto, S. Nakanishi and colleagues investigate extracellular electron transfer in an adhesive and metabolically versatile bacterium.
