Scientists have developed a new low-cost, environmentally friendly photon upconversion platform that achieves high thermal stability using deep eutectic solvents. Deep eutectic solvents are an emerging class of solvents that are a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to ionic liquids.
Scientists reported new insight into the electronic conduction and interference on 2D-topological insulators - an exotic kind of insulators that conduct only at the edge and that could be key for the development of a new generation of electronic devices.
How can damaged cardiac tissue following a heart attack best be treated with replacement muscle cells? A research team is now presenting an innovative method on mice: Muscle replacement cells, which are to take over the function of the damaged tissue, are loaded with magnetic nanoparticles.
