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…

One step closer to unlocking mysteries of the bio/nano interface

Proteins choreograph the infinitesimal dance of living cells and functional biomaterials. An interdisciplinary research team at Lehigh University has unraveled how functional biomaterials rely upon an interfacial protein layer to…

Virtual reality helping to treat fear of heights

Researchers from the University of Basel have developed a virtual reality app for smartphones to reduce fear of heights. Now, they have conducted a clinical trial to study its efficacy….

UTEP researchers make discoveries to better understand SARS-CoV-2 virus

An effort led by Lin Li, Ph.D., assistant professor of physics at The University of Texas at El Paso, in collaboration with students and faculty from Howard University, has identified…
