Professors Kim Kwanpyo, Kee Jung-Min, and Choi Kyudong were recognized for their work in nanomaterials, synthetic chemistry and fluid dynamics respectively.
Soft-matter particles, named Janus colloids after the two-faced Roman god, can be manipulated with electricity to form swarms, chains and clusters, a study shows.
Researchers have designed adhesive pads that mimic the suckers on octopus tentacles.
To carry out their roles, do DNA molecules interact with proteins—the prevailing hypothesis—or with each other? A study now provides direct evidence for the latter.
Researchers have developed an ultralight nanoporous gold which has increased strength and durability, while still maintaining the quality of standard gold.
