An experiment …

2 01 2013

More of a social experiment than the usual sparks and destruction fest which can be found in the lab. I’ve been having a bit of a play with the Mendeley desktop over Christmas. I’ve been really impressed with the flexibility of how you can grab and drop pdf files of journal articles (and anything else) and the sync feature means I have my reading list on both computers and iPad. At last, something worthwhile to read in meetings (although – I have been playing with the NASA app and the the NASA visual app in meetings for a while now)
As part of my playing with Mendeley, I have decided to try creating a group with a view to gauging the level of interest for research into Molybdenum Disulphide. This miracle material offers some significant advantages over graphene (a bandgap for example) and recent results from EPFL have demonstrated some pretty decent transistor characteristics. Hopefully, this new group (called Molybdenum Disulphide – original I know) will attract enough interested parties and then we can take it from there and branch out into other areas of our research.
