Frustrated magnets point towards new memory

Theoretical physicists have discovered that so-called 'frustrated magnets' can produce skyrmions, tiny magnetic vortices that may be used in memory storage. This discovery opens up a new class of materials for scientists working on 'skyrmionics', which aims to build memory and logic devices based on skyrmions.

3D-printed scaffolds could enable the release biomolecules into the body with exceptional control (w/video)

Tissue development is guided by gradients of biomolecules that direct the growth, migration, and differentiation of cells. Biomedical engineers are interested in recreating these developmental gradients in adults to aid the growth of new tissue in areas that have sustained damage. Now, researchers are one step closer to this goal thanks to the creation of new 3D-printed scaffolds that enable researchers to release biomolecules into the body with exceptional control.
