Resonances occur throughout science and engineering, from guitar strings to NMR scanners.
The dynamic self-assembly of atoms and molecules into low-dimensional structures has been vigorously pursued for several decades:

John Morton

Prof Morton's research takes spins of electrons and nuclei in a range of nano-scale materials and devices to develop a new generation of quantum technologies, including quantum sensors, quantum memories, and quantum computers. Prof Morton is the Director of the UCL Quantum Science and Technology Institute.


LCN scientists take an important step in developing a material using nano-sized magnets that could lead to new electronic devices.

Iain E. Dunlop

Dr Iain Dunlop's uses methods from nanotechnology and surface chemistry to address questions in cell biology. In vivo, cells determine their behaviour largely by reacting to their environments; in particular, they respond to specific signals that are located on surfaces that they come into contact with. Such signals are hugely important in ensuring each cell plays its role within multicellular organisms. However, because biological surfaces are complex, it can be difficult to know exactly which features are significant.

Living cells have an ‘in-built' system for controlling the length they grow to, according to research by scientists from...
