Self-organizing Materials

Science and Technology of Advanced Materials

Back to Special Collections

Self-organizing materials (SOM) are typical products of the bottom-up approach in nanotechnology. Their geometrical beauty and varied functions have attracted both academic and applied interest. This special collection presents recent STAM articles on popular self-organizing materials.
