Microscopic biological motors using magnetotactic bacteria

Since their discovery in the 1970s, scientists have developed a strong interested for magnetotactic bacteria, an intriguing microorganism that moves along the magnetic field lines due the magnetite particles they grow in ...

Dip-coating: How to predict the thickness of thin films?

The immersion method of applying a coating to an object presents a central challenge: predicting the thickness of the layer that will cover the object. This question raises important financial issues for manufacturers. A ...

How bacteria swim against the flow

It is well known that bacteria can swim against the current, which often causes serious problems—for example, when they spread in water pipes or in medical catheters. To prevent or at least slow down the spread of bacteria ...

Highly efficient cooling using a new nanoporous solid

Heat recovery (solar energy, heat pump, air conditioning, cooling) is a key research focus toward reducing power consumption and encouraging sustainable development. Even if water recovery and release using nanoporous materials ...

Morphological transitions of biological filaments under flow

The study of complex suspensions made of particles suspended in a simple fluid has been growing lately, with many opportunities for industry or lab-on-a-chip technology. The macroscopic flow properties of these suspensions ...
