By adjusting the size of the block copolymer, different patterns can be created. One half is friendly with oil, the other half is friendly with water, explained Do Han Kim, leader author on a paper describing the discovery. But because they are completely bonded, theyre kind of stuck with each other. Finally, a thin, protective polymer film is formed on a surface by heating it up and allowing it to condense, just like water vapour from a hot shower condenses on a cold mirror. This top coating forces the block copolymers to assemble in a certain way, guided by the underlying pattern, and it can be etched on to build another layer over the top. Cost-effective While there are other ways to achieve this kind of fine patterning, the team says that none of them are as cost-effective for large-scale manufacturing as this method.

At present, we know little of where the follow-up to The Force Awakens will go, other than it stars much of the previous film's cast, including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Mark Hamill, while various interviews with those returning actors have hinted at a darker direction for the story. In many respects, Johnson has a tough task ahead of him with Episode VIII ; The Force Awakens relied heavily on resurrecting the icons from the original trilogy - Han Solo, the Millennium Falcon and so on - but its sequel arguably needs to move things forward if this new series of movies is going to develop its own distinctive voice. Here's hoping that Johnson's indie sensibility - see Brick , The Brothers Bloom , Looper - will add a touch of the unexpected to this firmly re-established space opera. 5.

Some advisers said the problem was not with Suu Kyi but with senior civil servants in the capital Naypyitaw who she mostly retained, despite many being former army officers or having close military ties. "In every sector the bureaucrats are still using the same old tactics ... denying every accusation, stonewalling everything," said Han Tha Myint, one of NLD's leaders, adding that the administration had been trying to foster a more open attitude. Suu Kyi wanted to run the government "like a mother," he said, bringing everyone on board in the spirit of national reconciliation and treating officials "like her children", but that the loyalties of some remained with the country's former military rulers.
