MANA featured in Special Issue of Advanced Materials


Cover Picture, Adv. Mater., 24(2), 141(2012).

MANA was featured in the journal Advanced Materials published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Its major research achievements was published online on January 5th, 2012.

Advanced Materials is categorized into materials science field by the database of Thomson Reuters and one of the most high impact journals (IF: 10.88) in the field. This is the first time a Japanese research institute has featured in its own special issue of the top-ranking journal Advanced Materials.

In addition to the research papers listed below, the issue includes Nobel Laureate and MANA Advisor Heinrich Rohrer and Sir Harold Kroto offering their insights on the relationship between society and science and some advice for researchers in an editorial.
