Most-cited Paper in a Highlighted Research Area of Material Science
Alexandre Dmitriev’s, assistant professor in the Division of Bionanophotonics, and colleagues at Applied physics (M. Zach, C. Langhammer, B. Kasemo) article “Hole-mask colloidal lithography” was selected by Essential Science Indicators from Thomson Reuters as the most-cited paper in a highlighted research area of Material Science.
A “method paper”, as he labels this article in an interview to ScienceWatch.com, describes a recipe for bottom-up nanofabrication of low-dimensional structures at surfaces in ambient conditions. This recipe, due to easy and affordable nanofabrication, can bring benefits in a plethora research and technologies areas, where one needs objects of 20-500 nm, fabricated on an arbitrary surface and covering cm2 area. This approach can in the future provide great opportunities within such diverse fields as photovoltaics, biological or chemical sensing and spintronics, to name the few.
