Quantum dots form ordered material

Quantum dots are clusters of some 1,000 atoms which act as one large "super-atom." It is possible to accurately design the electronic properties of these dots just by changing their size. However, to create functional devices, ...

Taking salt out of the water equation

Ultrathin polymer-based ordered membranes that effectively remove salt from seawater and brine could provide a promising alternative to existing water desalination systems, a KAUST-led team demonstrates. Their research appears ...

Advanced Materials

Advanced Materials is a peer-reviewed materials science journal published every two weeks. It includes Communications, Reviews, and Feature Articles from the cutting edge of materials science, including topics in chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, ceramics, metallurgy, and biomaterials, and is one of the most heavily cited journals in this multidisciplinary field.

The journal was founded in 1988 as a supplement in the general chemistry journal Angewandte Chemie and remained in that journal for the first 18 months of its existence. The Founding Editor was Dr. Peter Goelitz (the Editor of Angewandte Chemie). Dr Peter Gregory was the Editor from 1991 until 2002 and he was succeeded by Dr. Esther Levy from 2002 to 2006. In 2007 Peter Gregory returned as Editor.

The editorial office is in Weinheim, near Heidelberg in Germany, from where the peer review process is coordinated by an editorial team made up of chemists, physicists, and engineers.

The 2007 ISI Impact Factor of Advanced Materials was 8.191.

Frequent topics covered by the journal also include liquid crystals, semiconductors, superconductors, optics, lasers, sensors, mesoporous materials, shape memory alloys, light-emitting materials, magnetic materials, thin films, and colloids.
