The current tendency in bone tissue engineering is developing materials that temporarily substitute for the bone while inducing its regeneration in such a way that this, temporary material, disappears as the bone recovers its space.
Einem Team von Forschern der Uni Hamburg und des spanischen Forschungszentrums IMDEA Nanoscience ist es gelungen, Materialien auf chemischem Wege herzustellen, die sich durch Selbstorganisation zu zweidimensionalen Nanostrukturen zusammenfinden.
Researchers report the creation of pseudo-magnetic fields far stronger than the strongest magnetic fields ever sustained in a laboratory - just by putting the right kind of strain onto a patch of graphene.
Physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) have found that when graphene is stretched in a specific way it sprouts nanobubbles in which electrons behave in a bizarre way, as if they are moving in a strong magnetic field.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, known for having one of the top research programs in the country for batteries and fuel cells for vehicle applications, has decided to enter another area in the battery world. It has been granted $1.6 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to develop a novel storage device for the electric grid.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a new fluorescent biosensor that could aid in the development of an important class of drugs that target a crucial class of proteins called G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).
Nabil Mistkawi, a new Portland State University (PSU) chemistry graduate and full-time Intel employee, has invented a one-of-a-kind chemical formulation that enables sub-50 nanometer (nm) process technology for advanced microprocessors manufacturing.
