Patch after intestinal surgery

Dear Sir or Madam,

If parts of the intestine must be reconnected after surgery, patches made from biocompatible material are used to close the wound. But these can become leaky and cause a dangerous seepage of intestinal contents into the abdomen. A new hydrogel patch that is in development at ETH Zurich could change this. See more about this in our video.

Enjoy watching,

The objective of the cryoanalytics laboratory at the TU Ilmenau is to develop a deeper "understanding" of materials by freezing physical processes to subsequently develop the next generation of hardware. Professor Martin Ziegler and his team are studying new methods to support digitization for the upcoming decades. Check out how in this interview!

Researchers train AI to predict new compounds

Materials & Production

A new algorithm has been designed to help discover previously unknown material compounds. It was developed by a team from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), Friedrich Schiller University Jena and Lund University in Sweden. The researchers designed a form of artificial intelligence (AI) based on machine learning that can perform complex calculations within a very short space of time.

3D Laser Nanoprinters Become Compact

Materials & Production

Lasers in conventional laser printers for paper printouts are very small. 3D laser printers for 3-dimensional microstructures and nanostructures, by contrast, have required big and expensive laser systems so far. Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Heidelberg University now use another process for this purpose.

How organic neuromorphic electronics can think and act

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

The human brain works differently than a computer - while the brain works with biological cells and electrical impulses, a computer uses silicon-based transistors. Scientists led by Paschalis Gkoupidenis, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, have now combined the two worlds in a large-scale research collaboration.

UArizona researchers develop ultra-thin 'computer on the bone'

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

A team of University of Arizona researchers has developed an ultra-thin wireless device that grows to the surface of bone and could someday help physicians monitor bone health and healing over long periods. The devices, called osseosurface electronics, are described in a paper published in Nature Communications.
