Take Organic Dye, Add Carbon Nanotubes, Stir

A simple method of producing conductive nanomaterials may have uses from spacesuits to optoelectronics

Transparent electrodes, anti-radiation space suits and batteries that change color as they lose charge – all these may one day be manufactured with the help of a new class of self-assembling nanomaterials recently created at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Taming the Curse of High Dimensionality

Unexpected connections may help simplify the math of complex systems

When mathematicians talk about spatial dimensions, they usually mean the number of coordinates needed to describe a point or sample in that space. The universe as we know it has three dimensions. But higher-dimensional spaces are needed to describe, for example, all the possible states of a system with 100 particles, in which each particle is described by location and velocity.
