This SEM image comes courtesy of Roey Elnathan and Nicolas Voelcker at Monash University, and their co-employees, demonstrating the use of vertical silicon nanotubes (SiNTs) to control cell development and gene modifying via intracellular delivery of small molecules. The giant scale bar represents 10 µm, while the dimensions bar within the inset represents just 2 µm.
Jesper Nygård and Thomas Sand Jespersen from the University of Copenhagen and their co-workers have created a crystal progress platform for in situ development of semiconductor/superconductor hybrids. The technique eliminates the necessity for etching, enabling full freedom in the alternative of hybrid constituents. There is art in science and science in artwork — here we’ve put together some of the most inspiring science pictures revealed in our journals this month.
Jonathan Hopkins of the University of California, Los Angeles and colleagues report a scalable approach to assembling 3D arrays of microgranular crystals using holographic optical tweezers. Vascular networks are central components of organ‐on‐a‐chip systems.
A recent research finds that up to 31% of plastic exported for recycling is not recycled at all. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate coordinated progress within the body and the remarkable parallels between species allows scientists to create a common mannequin for morphological scaling.
Why Scientists Are Eavesdropping On A Rainforest In Indonesia
The planks on this “woodpile” design are a mere 30 nanometers aside from one another. Frederik Mayer and Martin Wegener of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and their co-employees built this tiny object utilizing a new materials for 3D printing. Xiaohu Gao from the University of Washington and co-workers combine two highly effective technologies; quantum dots and a technique for amplifying the fluorescence given off by imaging molecules, referred to as sign amplification by exchange reaction (SABER).
