Study Shows How Electricity-Eating Microbes Use Electrons to Fix Carbon Dioxide

Washington University in St. Louis

New research from Washington University in St. Louis explains the cellular processes that allow a sun-loving microbe to "eat" electricity -- transferring electrons to fix carbon dioxide to fuel its growth. The work is led by Arpita Bose, assistant professor of biology in Arts & Sciences, and Michael Guzman, a PhD candidate in her laboratory.

Optical “tweezers” combine with X-rays to enable analysis of crystals in liquids

Argonne National Laboratory

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have developed a new technique that combines the power of microscale “tractor beams” with high-powered X-rays, enabling them to see and manipulate crystals freely floating in solution.

4D-Printed Materials Can Be Stiff as Wood or Soft as Sponge

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Imagine smart materials that can morph from being stiff as wood to as soft as a sponge – and also change shape. Rutgers University–New Brunswick engineers have created flexible, lightweight materials with 4D printing that could lead to better shock absorption, morphing airplane or drone wings, soft robotics and tiny implantable biomedical devices. Their research is published in the journal Materials Horizons.

UCI Engineers Aim to Pioneer Tissue-Engineering Approach to TMJ Disorders

University of California, Irvine

Irvine, Calif., March 20, 2019 – Here’s something to chew on: One in four people are impacted by defects of the temporomandibular – or jaw – joint. Despite the pervasiveness of this affliction, treatments are lacking, and many sufferers resort to palliative measures to cope with the pain and debilitation it causes. “The TMJ is central to chewing, talking and so many other daily activities, so when this crucial joint is impaired, there are significant negative effects on quality of life,” said Kyriacos A.

Robotic “Gray Goo”

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Researchers at Columbia Engineering and MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), demonstrate for the first time a way to make a robot composed of many loosely coupled components, or “particles.” Unlike swarm or modular robots, each component is simple, and has no individual address or identity. In their system, which the researchers call a “particle robot,” each particle can perform only uniform volumetric oscillations (slightly expanding and contracting), but cannot move independently.

Student steps in to help Airbus with last-minute project need

Wichita State University

Having direct access to students’ talent and skills is a huge part of why Airbus Americas moved to the Wichita State University campus two years ago. One of those opportunities for collaboration played out perfectly this winter when Airbus officials in the research and technology department needed a last-minute artistic rendering for an airplane seat under development.
