The emergence of a set of simple yet powerful electron counting rules following a classic paper by Wade published in 1971 in J. Chem. Soc. D has transformed the way chemists think about the structures of clusters with delocalised skeletal bonding. This journal is © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2013. Source

A method for making natural fibre products comprising embrittling natural fibres and breaking the embrittled fibres into nanoparticles, forming a suspension of the fibre nanoparticles in a spinnable liquid, and spinning fibre from the suspension. The method may be used to make fibres having the dimensions and properties of cashmere.

An image sensor includes a pixel array and an image sensor objective optical element. The element is formed by a lenslet array. Each lenslet in the array directs incoming radiation onto a different specific pixel or sub-array of pixels in the pixel array. The lenslets in the array are shaped such that fields of view of next-but-one neighboring ones of the lenslets (i.e., two lenslets spaced from each other by another lenslet) do not overlap until a certain object distance away from the lenslet array.
