The cover for Science and Engineering 2022: The State of U.S. Science and Engineering shows molecules leaving the solvation shell and integrating into the crystal surface. Using computer-based simulations to analyze how atoms and molecules move in a solution, researchers at the University of Illinois Chicago identified a general mechanism governing crystal growth that scientists can manipulate when developing new materials. In this illustration, local fluctuations allow molecules to leave the solvation shell and integrate into the crystal surface (This research was supported by National Science Foundation grant CBET 1706921.)
