Liquid foam: Plastic, elastic and fluid

02-Dec-2015

What differentiates complex fluids from mere fluids? What makes them unique is that they are neither solid nor liquid. Among such complex fluids are foams. They are used as a model to understand the mechanisms underlying complex fluids flow. Now, a team of French physicists has gained new ...

Neutron beams reveal how antibodies cluster in solution

23-May-2014

Scientists have used small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and neutron spin-echo (NSE) techniques for the first time to understand how monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), a class of targeted biopharmaceuticals used to treat autoimmune disorders and cancer, dynamically cluster and move in high ...

Nano-tattoos for bespoke surface design

11-Jun-2013

Research reports a new strategy for using atomic force microscopy (AFM) coupled with homogeneous catalysis to carry out chemical reactions that have been ‘tattooed’ onto a material surface. Researchers in France immobilised a homogeneous transition metal catalyst onto an AFM probe and used it to ...

Multi-coloured photonic materials with a ‘woodpile’ structure

27-Mar-2013

High quality photonic materials possessing a ‘woodpile’ structure have been fabricated using a single prism holographic lithography technique. The multicolored materials, which comprise of 160nm rods stacked in alternating piles, show enhanced fluorescence due to their large surface area and the ...

A new type of sunscreen

01-Feb-2013

Researchers from France have developed a new type of sunscreen. The sunscreen is made from latex that traps a UVB filter chemical within its structure. The team designed the sunscreen to protect wounded skin, which conventional sun creams are ineffective for. The sun-shielding films were able to ...
