To restore vision, implant preps and seeds a damaged eye

Researchers trying to restore vision damaged by disease have found promise in a tiny implant that sows seeds of new cells in the eye. They built a mesh through a process called electrospinning, which uses electrical charges to draw biodegradable polymers out of a needle and into a fine stream, producing interwoven fibers ranging from 1/20th to 1/1000th the width of a hair.

Electrons on the brink: Fractal patterns may be key to semiconductor magnetism

Scientists have observed electrons in a semiconductor on the brink of the metal-insulator transition for the first time. Caught in the act, the electrons formed complex patterns resembling those seen in turbulent fluids, confirming some long-held predictions and providing new insights into how semiconductors can be turned into magnets.
