Scientists use artificial intelligence to detect gravitational waves

When gravitational waves were first detected in 2015 by the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), they sent a ripple through the scientific community, as they confirmed another of Einstein’s…

Pop-up coffee table — no assembly required

Kiriform structures harness buckling for stable, deployable structures. Deployable structures — objects that transition from a compact state to an expanded one — are used everywhere from backyards to Mars….

New method for molecular functionalization of surfaces

Stable and ordered single molecule layers on silicon through self-assembly; publication in ‘Nature Chemistry’. One vision that is currently driving material scientists is to combine organic molecules (and their diverse…

Optimizing 3D-printed components for laser beam welding

Welding 3D-printed components with the laser: This is the goal of the scientists at the Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover (IPH) gGmbH and the Laser Zentrum Hanno-ver e.V. (LZH). In…

Creating nanomaterials with new laser driven method

In the journal Nature Communications, an interdisciplinary team from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces presents for the first time a laser-driven technology that enables them to create…

Research team investigates causes of tuberous sclerosis

Mutations can disrupt protein binding through a “burr effect” thus interfering with the regulation of cell growth. Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) affects between one and two of every 10,000 new-born…

A physics perspective on wound healing

Scientists from UNIGE and UZH have used a statistical physics approach to identify the lengthscales of key intercellular interactions which govern tissue healing. In material physics understanding how systems interact…

The colour blue in the world of flowers

International study explores its rarity … Blue is the favourite colour of more people in the world than any other, and the “blue flower” is considered a symbol of romantic…

Like an artificial nervous system

Interdisciplinary research team in RTG “Materials for Brain” produces extremely conductive hydrogel for medical applications. Due to their tissue-like mechanical properties, hydrogels are being increasingly used for biomedical applications; a…

Its curvature foreshadows the next financial bubble

An international team of interdisciplinary researchers has identified mathematical metrics to characterize the fragility of financial markets. Their paper “Network geometry and market instability“ sheds light on the higher-order architecture…
