Scientists perform observation experiment with optical direct measurement to investigate droplet spreading and capillary wicking on nanostructured surfaces fabricated by the hydrothermal synthesis method with various nanowire array types and nanowire sizes.
Researchers have fabricated 3D printed photoresponsive shape memory devices through combining fused deposition modeling (FDM) printing technology and photoresponsive shape memory composites based on polyurethane and carbon black.
A research team has succeeded to reveal experimental evidence of topological superconductivity near the surface of epitaxial palladium dibismuthides films, and possible Majorana zero modes at magnetic vortices.
As the sensitivity of micro- and nanofluidic systems relies on the bio-functionalities of the patterned recognition biomolecules, the primary concern has been to develop simple technologies that enable biomolecule immobilization within microfluidic devices whilst preserving bio-functionalities.
A group of researchers has synthesized an amphiphilic hyaluronic acid-ceramide-dopamine (HACE-d) conjugate and introduced the mussel-inspired properties of dopamine into the nanoparticles for tumor-specific delivery of phloretin and in vivo visualization of cancer.
A novel composite material shows promise as a catalyst for the degradation of environmentally-harmful synthetic dye pollutants, which are released at a rate of nearly 300,000 tonnes a year into the world's water.
