Interesting materials reads

* [0807.0378] Nano Imprint Lithography on Silica Sol-gels: a simple route to sequential patterning — multiple layers of stamping for nanophotonic or microfluidic apps. I love microfluidics, what a crazy and fun area
* Scale production of nanotube circuits — I’m not sure what they’ve done but scale production is the key problem
* Qubits and branes share surprising features — way beyond me…
* Cornell researchers figure out how assemble metals in complex nanostructures — a cool new way to form bulk metals
* Controlling quantum state via voltage — interesting work on the way to useful quantum computers
