Structurally flexible silicene integrated with Si wafers

As the Si counterpart of graphene, silicene is an atom-thick, ultimately thin, two-dimensional crystal of silicon. A team of researchers at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology has succeeded in preparing silicene on Si wafers via a ceramic zirconium diboride buffer layer, paving the way for an integration of silicene with existing Si-based technologies that intrinsically face limits with top-down approaches.

Speeding up bone growth by manipulating stem cells with nanoparticles

Scientists report that surfaces coated with bionanoparticles could greatly accelerate the early phases of bone growth. Their coatings, based in part on genetically modified Tobacco mosaic virus, reduced the amount of time it took to convert stem cells into bone nodules - from two weeks to just two days.
