Nano-needles can force medicine into cells, even when they resist taking it
Physicist Pawel Sikorski and his group are making beds of nails on a miniature scale – a plate covered in nano-needles designed to puncture individual cells.
Researchers manipulate cubic zirconia to improve conductivity in fuel cells
(Phys.org) —Cubic zirconia has long been favored for its use in costume jewelry. Known scientifically as yttria-stabilized zirconia, it is also a known conductor of oxygen, making it useful as an electrolyte ...
