A new shape inside your skin
The type of cells responsible for forming skin and the lining of an organism’s organs will morph into “scutoids” in order to accommodate those organs’ complex curvature.

Most of the theories describing dynamical processes at surfaces rely on the validity of the adiabatic Born-Oppenheimer approximation. What does this mean? We have already seen that adsorption commonly is understood as the reversible binding of molecules and atoms […]

Metallic glasses are a unique class of materials whose properties combine some of the irreconcilable properties of both metals and polymers. They consist of a combination of metals which, in the solid state, present an amorphous atomic structure, in contrast […]

Gulf Stream’s slowdown may increase global temperatures
The slowing of the Gulf Stream could lead to higher temperatures around the world. Researchers examined the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation over the past seven decades and noted patterns that suggest Earth could […]

Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is responsible for approximately 90% of urinary tract infections (UTI) seen in individuals with an ordinary anatomy. In ascending infections, fecal bacteria colonize the urethra and spread up the urinary tract to the bladder as […]

The progress that physics experienced during the 20th century was probably one of the greatest and most everlasting successes of the humankind. Discovering the hidden and minute composition of matter and energy, as well as realising that the […]

Research on language comprehension has always underscored the speed and precision with which the brain integrates and process the input while at […]

Sea-level rise may spell doom for salt marshes in southeast England
Salt marshes in southeast England could start to disappear beginning in 2040 due to sea-level rises.

Atom scattering at low energies has a long history as a useful probe of surface properties. The most common atomic projectiles are helium atoms formed into a monoenergetic beam directed toward the surface with energies in the thermal range, meaning […]
