Study discovers folding graphene significantly enhances mechanical performance

A piece of paper fold over ordinarily ready to convey more weight than a level sheet of paper of a similar length. Thus, folding...
Biofilms can have a significant impact on would healing by contributing to bacterial infection, inflammation, and delayed would healing. Therefore, removing biofilms is necessary for the successful treatment of chronic wounds.

Combating biofilm-associated chronic infections with BALO

A universal group of scientists, subsidiary with UNIST has divulged that biofilms framed by pathogenic microscopic organisms can be degraded by bacterial predators. They...
Information loss by asymmetry and small aperture. (A) A stone falling in a pond produces full circular waves that are centered on the impact point, and those waves would back propagate onto that same point if time could be reversed. Using this time-reversal argument, if one generates back propagating circular waves from a limited arc, they will not necessarily focus at the center. (B) Representation of how diffraction effects compete with focusing for a beam of different initial size, that is different aperture.

Correcting the eyesight of microscopes

The cornea, a focal point holed up behind the pupils, focuses light from the screen to the back of the eye. Be that as...
