New mechanism of plasmons specific for spin-polarized nanoparticles (open access)

New mechanism of plasmons specific for spin-polarized nanoparticles

This article experimentally shows that Co nanoparticles with a single-domain crystal structure support a plasmon resonance at approximately 280 nm with better quality than gold nanoparticle resonance in the visible. The magnetic nature of these nanoparticles suggests a new type of these plasmons.

Giant spin Hall effect in two-dimensional monochalcogenides (open access)

Giant spin Hall effect in two-dimensional monochalcogenides

This article, using calculations from first principles, reveals for the first time giant intrinsic spin Hall conductivities (SHC) in these materials. In particular, the article shows that the SHC resonances can be easily tuned by combination of strain and doping and, in some cases, strain can be used to induce semiconductor to metal transition that makes a giant spin Hall effect possible even in absence of doping.

Multimodal switching of a redox-active macrocycle (open access)

Multimodal switching of a redox-active macrocycle

This article looks at molecules that can exist in multiple states with the possibility of toggling between those states based on different stimuli. They have potential for use in molecular switching or sensing applications. The coupling of two different oxidation states with two different charge-transfer states within one macrocyclic scaffold delivers up to five different optical outputs. This molecular switching manifold exploits intramolecular coupling of multiple redox active substituents within a single molecule.

Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse (open access)

Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse

This article tested the cross-species application of the Affymetrix 600K Chicken SNP array in five species of North American prairie grouse (Centrocercus and Tympanuchus genera). Two individuals were genotyped per species for a total of ten samples and a high proportion (91%) of the total 580 961 SNPs were genotyped in at least one individual (73–76% SNPs genotyped per species).

Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse

This article tested the cross-species application of the Affymetrix 600K Chicken SNP array in five species of North American prairie grouse (Centrocercus and Tympanuchus genera). This study study provided evidence for successful cross-species application of the chicken SNP array in grouse which diverged ca. 37 mya from the chicken lineage. As far as the authors are concerned, this is the first reported application of a SNP array in non-passerine birds, and it demonstrates the feasibility of using commercial SNP arrays in research on non-model bird species.

Improved Campephiline detection: An experiment conducted with the Magellanic Woodpecker

Article describes a study which tried to determine which of three methods (useing a drumming device to simulate a double‐knock (i.e., territorial acoustical signal), broadcasting a territorial call, or passively listening) best results in a detection of Magellanic Woodpeckers (Campephilus magellanicus ), and if weather variables influence detection probability.
