To a greater or lesser extent, all of us share these “inclinations of temperament.” However, while biases are theoretically neutral, the reality is that they have the potential to mislead […]

Nanoparticles Aid Bone Growth, and Study

Rice — In the first study of its kind, bioengineers and bioscientists at Rice University and Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands, have shown they can grow denser bone tissue by sprinkling stick-like nanoparticles throughout the porous material used to pattern the bone.

What We Can Learn From Indiana Jones?

By all accounts, it came close to setting a box office record for ticket sales despite competing with the first getaway holiday of the summer. For those who haven’t seen it, the […]

Laser Light Produces Complex Nanostructures, Study

ScienceDaily Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, in Sweden have reported that a single laser pulse can create complex, ordered nanostructure systems. “We have discovered a method for controlling the pattern into which the nanoparticles organize themselves,” says physicist Dinko Chakarov, one of the authors of the article . The complex nanostructures that are created […]
