Neuron on DNA Surface

This is an embryonic nerve cell growing on DNA. In this system DNA is being studied as a tool to dynamically control surface adhesion for cells. Changing the cell behavior at different time intervals allows us to recreate the dynamic growth sequences that occur naturally in regenerating animals like newts.

Hybrid inorganic/polymer based photovoltaic nanodevices offer the promise of low cost large area conversion of solar energy to electricity. Nanostructures of zinc oxide have shown supreme capabilities in emerging technologies ranging from solar energy harvesting to biosensing. However, the ability to control the size and position of these nanostructures is crucial for fabricating nanodevices with remarkable properties and astonishing solar energy conversion efficiencies. Herein, we present a collection of scanning electron micrographs of zinc oxide nanostructures prepared by low temperature hydrothermal methods Image taken and Processed by Luisa Whittaker PhD.
