Self-assembly of Nanoparticles and their Potential as Drug Delivery Vehicles
Authors present a rationally designed nanoparticle (NP) formulation that mimics a liposome outer bilayer but can help achieve a uniform size through a bottom up synthetic approach afforded by an inorganic NP scaffold at its core.

Reversible optical switching of antiferromagnetism in TbMnO3
Antiferromagnetism is magnetic order, yet without a macroscopic magnetization as in iron. The absence of the field has interesting technological potential, but it also makes the antiferromagnetic state harder to control and set in a certain direction. Light, however, can do this if antiferromagnets from a special class of materials called multiferroics are selected.
