Biofunctionalized native spider silk fibers can be used in a wide spectrum of biomedical and biotechnological applications.
The research team has developed a cost-effective and high-throughput method to fabricate the graphene moiré metasurface.
Researchers describe a novel “body-on-a-chip” device that consists of 14 interconnected compartments, each representing a different organ of the human body.
Pd nanosheets function both as broadband light absorbers and as synthetic catalysts for the dehydrogenation of formic acid to hydrogen and oxygen.
To avoid an undesired protein adsorption, nanoparticles were masked with poly(2-oxazoline)s resulting in a stealth coating comparable or superior to PEG.
Alex Palma-Cando and Ullrich Scherf discuss the synthesis, properties, and applications of electrochemically generated thin films of microporous polymer networks.
A promising multifunctional nanocarrier for opto-acoustic imaging-guided chemotherapy or phtotothermal therapy is presented.
Anisotropic conductive films can be produced by shear flow that induces the self-assembly of conductive fillers (like carbon nanotubes, graphene or inexpensive carbon black) into parallel stripes in a polymer matrix.
UC Santa Barbara researchers Prasad Iyer and Prof. Jon Schuller propose a new route, novel electrically reconfigurable metasurfaces, as an important step towards on-chip programmable optics.
