The highs and lows of regenerative medicine

Nanoscale manipulation on the surface of materials could stimulate cells to differentiate into specific tissues – eliminating the use of growth or transcription factors.

Team offers new, simpler law of complex wrinkle patterns

In a new paper, researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Oxford University describe a new, more general law for predicting the wavelength of complex wrinkle patterns, including those found on curved surfaces, ...

Rethinking surface tension

(Phys.org) —If you've ever watched a drop of water form into a bead or a water strider scoot across a pond, you are familiar with a property of liquids called surface tension.

Analyzing the status of oxide surface photochemical reactivity

As shown by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Dr. Michael Henderson and Dr. Igor Lyubinetsky in their invited review article, using scanning probe microscopy techniques, in particular scanning tunneling microscopy or ...
