Professor Eiji Iwase and graduate student Tomoya Koshi of Waseda University, Japan, have created a metal wire that can reconstruct itself utilizing electric field trapping of gold nanoparticles.
Professor Eiji Iwase (Faculty of Science and Engineering) and 1st year graduate student Tomoya Koshi (Graduate School of Fundamental Science and Engineering) have created a metal wire that can reconstruct itself utilizing electric field trapping of gold nanoparticles.
The reconstructive ability achieved in this research is expected to impact the hard-wiring of flexible devices and temperature-prone substrate electronics.
The content of this research was presented at the 28th International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (January 18-22, 2015). The research presentation was selected as an “Outstanding Oral Paper Award Finalist” and garnered much interest.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
