Jonathan Hopkins of the University of California, Los Angeles and co-workers report a scalable strategy to assembling 3D arrays of microgranular crystals using holographic optical tweezers. Vascular networks are central elements of organ‐on‐a‐chip systems.

Computational methods enable researchers to delve deeper into molecular processes, beyond what can easily be achieved with present experimental methods. A pair of micro-scale pliers was created from a liquid crystalline elastomer and fiber optic wire, which may reversibly change shape in response to visible light. RNA-associated processes that are key to the biology of the cell are at risk during coronavirus infections.

Jesper Nygård and Thomas Sand Jespersen from the University of Copenhagen and their co-workers have created a crystal growth platform for in situ progress of semiconductor/superconductor hybrids. The technique eliminates the necessity for etching, enabling full freedom within the alternative of hybrid constituents. There is art in science and science in artwork — right here we’ve put together some of the most inspiring science images published in our journals this month.

Here, we take a look at a number of the most intriguing scientific pictures revealed in June 2020. Celebrating “10 years of Advanced Energy Materials Research,” Tierui Zhang opens up about his scientific career and his somewhat unique pastime of chemistry stamp collecting.

A current examine finds that up to 31{e5210e2b2646e08f17e89a274273c413a1386b903ccae2616793a547f8de7c06} of plastic exported for recycling is not recycled in any respect. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate coordinated progress in the body and the outstanding parallels between species allows scientists to create a universal mannequin for morphological scaling.
