Hexbyte Glen Cove Lasers and molecular tethers create perfectly patterned platforms for tissue engineering

Top view of two collagen hydrogels that researchers decorated with immobilized mCherry proteins, which glow red under fluorescent light. The team scanned near-infrared lasers in the shapes of a monster (left) and Seattle's Space Needle (right) to create these patterns. Black regions were not scanned with the laser, and so the mCherry protein did...

Figure 1: The droplets of gallium liquid metal. Credit: Jialuo Han, UNSW While it is fascinating that living creatures develop distinct patterns on their skin, what may be even more mysterious is their striking similarity to the skin of frozen liquid metals. Pattern formation is a classic example of one of nature's wonders that...

Hexbyte Glen Cove Nanodiamond sensors can act as both heat sources and thermometers

(a) Illustration of the structure of a nanodiamond quantum sensor coated with a pyrogenic polymer, and how it operates as a hybrid nanoheater/thermometer. (b) Electron microscope image of hybrid sensors. (c) Working principle of the hybrid sensor for measuring nanometric thermal conductivity. In a medium with high thermal conductivity, the temperature increase of the...
