Previously it has been shown that the chirality can be manipulated by applying magnetic fields to complicated nanowire geometries, but the use of magnetic fields is wasteful of energy and limits the ability to address individual domain walls selectively.
Chirality is on exhibit from August 15, 2016 through January 16, 2017, at the National Academy of Sciences, 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC.
Being able to encode chirality can have important applications in information security such as anti-counterfeiting,' said Antonio Ambrosio, a research scientist in the Capasso Lab.

This experiment is the first asymmetric synthesis of a stable one-handed helical polymer from an optically inactive achiral monomer, and provided clear evidence for the existence of an optically active vinyl polymer with the chirality due only to its helicity.
Is the amazing phenomenon of chirality of insolvent histograms also depending on the motion of the Earth in the anisotropic space?
These features can lead to ribbon, single, double and triple helical structures of right- and left-handed chirality, which can potentially lead to new applications for these materials.
Perhaps, he opines, the accidental chirality of our macromolecules "set the stage" for life as we know it, and alternate forms of life could easily exist.
Including the introduction of chirality in skincare manufacturing during the mid-90's.
Among the topics are the basics of graphs and molecular graphs, advanced properties of molecular graphs, chirality, stereoisomers, supervised statistical learning, and case studies of computer-aided structure elucidation (CASE).
The research topics are formidable and include the cardinal virtue of ren in Confucius' "The Analects,'' "the origin of chirality (or handedness) in a prebiotic life,'' Ezra Pound's view of "The Canterbury Tales'' and how to design a research trial using microbes transplanted from the human biome.
The structure is novel due to Archimedean spiral is intrinsic chirality, so the design is combined intrinsic chirality with structure chirality.
The grade designated SG65i is the successor to SG65, recognized for its quality, consistency and controlled chirality, and specifically its high concentration of semiconducting species.
Recent work indicates that multiple, low-energy stereoisomers of the radical may be present due to small energy changes resulting from both the chirality, and the free rotation, of the hydroxy and peroxy moieties.
Effect of chirality of the medium which rotates the plane of linearly polarized wave passing through it is studied by Arago [1], Biot [2] and Fresnel [3].
