Better detecting cancer with ultrashort flashes of light: New junior research group at Leibniz IPHT

Research to improve cancer diagnostics: Young scientist Maria Chernysheva is setting up a junior research group at Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena to develop novel ultrafast lasers. With new approaches to ultrafast fiber lasers, Maria Chernysheva intends to expand the wavelength range researched in Jena and establish a new technological platform for infrared spectroscopy for diagnosing cancer. Ultrafast laser technology is particularly suitable for this purpose because it provides fingerprint-like information on the molecular composition of tissue and thus enables fast, precise and gentle diagnosis.

From Moscow via Birmingham to Jena: For Dr. Maria Chernysheva, Leibniz IPHT as the new stage of her scientific career means more than a geographical change....

Powering a pacemaker with a patient's heartbeat

Implantable pacemakers have without doubt altered modern medicine, saving countless lives by regulating heart rhythm. But they have one serious shortcoming: Their batteries last only five to 12 years, at which point they have to be replaced surgically. Now, researchers have surmounted this issue by designing a pacemaker powered by the energy of heartbeats, according to a report in ACS Nano. The device was successfully tested in pigs, which have a similar physiology to humans.

A conventional pacemaker is implanted just under the skin near the collarbone. Its battery and circuitry generate electrical signals that are delivered to the...

Novel coating enables hip implants to grow in better and prevents aseptic inflammation

The number of hip prostheses in the EU has risen steadily over the past ten years – most notably in Austria and Germany with 300 implants per 100,000 inhabitants. The frequency of aseptic inflammatory processes between bone and implant, accompanied with loosening of the prosthesis, has increased, resulting in a shortened lifetime of the hip replacement. A consortium of eleven research and industrial partners led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT has now joined forces to develop a new generation of endoprosthesis for the treatment of aseptic loosening disease.

EVPRO – short for: Extracellular Vesicles Promoted Regenerative Osseointegration – aims to counteract the shortened lifetime and to reduce the risk of...

Correcting presbyopia with the laser

Presbyopia and astigmatism are widespread. To prevent the glasses from becoming unavoidable, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed a virtual eye model together with two project partners. With this, an eye surgery can be simulated. During the so-called fs-lentotomy, the lens of the eye is made more flexible again by generating microsections with a femtosecond laser. In fs-keratotomy, the astigmatism of the cornea is compensated by targeted cuts.

For the RayFEye project, the scientists of the LZH have developed both a mechanics and an optics model.

Reinforcement learning expedites 'tuning' of robotic prosthetics

Researchers from North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina and Arizona State University have developed an intelligent system for "tuning" powered prosthetic knees, allowing patients to walk comfortably with the prosthetic device in minutes, rather than the hours necessary if the device is tuned by a trained clinical practitioner. The system is the first to rely solely on reinforcement learning to tune the robotic prosthesis.

When a patient receives a robotic prosthetic knee, the device needs to be tuned to accommodate that specific patient. The new tuning system tweaks 12 different...

Die letzten 5 Focus-News des innovations-reports im Überblick:

Im Focus: 'Nanochains' could increase battery capacity, cut charging time

How long the battery of your phone or computer lasts depends on how many lithium ions can be stored in the battery's negative electrode material. If the battery runs out of these ions, it can't generate an electrical current to run a device and ultimately fails.

Materials with a higher lithium ion storage capacity are either too heavy or the wrong shape to replace graphite, the electrode material currently used in...

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.
