Abstract:
Nanoparticles are typically well-rounded individuals - to the extent that it is difficult to involve them in any interactions that depend on geometrical preferences. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), US, have now succeeded in breaking the symmetry of nanoparticles using a mathematical principle known as the hairy ball theorem.
