Optically directed mesoscale assembly and patterning of electrically conductive organic-inorganic hybrid structures.
Summary of "Optically directed mesoscale assembly and patterning of electrically conductive organic-inorganic hybrid structures."
Directed colloidal synthesis of conductive organic-inorganic hybrid mesoscale structures is reported. The technique is simple but allows hierarchical assembly and 2D patterning of materials. A focused laser spot is used to direct the colloidal assembly of nanoparticles into electrically conductive organic-inorganic hybrid mesoscale filaments with arbitrary permanent patterns on a glass surface.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The processes occurring in early development that direct morphogenesis. They specify the body plan ensuring that cells will proceed to differentiate, grow, and diversify in size and shape at the correct relative positions. Included are axial patterning, segmentation, compartment specification, limb position, organ boundary patterning, blood vessel patterning, etc.
Hearing Loss, Mixed Conductive-sensorineural
Hearing loss due to damage or impairment of both the conductive elements (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE) and the sensorineural elements (HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL) of the ear.
Glomus Tympanicum Tumor
A rare PARAGANGLIOMA involving the GLOMUS TYMPANICUM, a collection of chemoreceptor tissue adjacent to the TYMPANIC CAVITY. It can cause TINNITUS and conductive hearing loss (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE).
Volatile Organic Compounds
Organic compounds that have a relatively high VAPOR PRESSURE at room temperature.
Nucleosome Assembly Protein 1
A histone chaperone that facilitates nucleosome assembly by mediating the formation of the histone octamer and its transfer to DNA.
The power densities of microbial fuel cells with yeast cells as the anode catalyst were significantly increased by immobilizing the yeast in electrically conductive alginate electrodes. The peak power...
Photoelectronically conductive self-assembling peptide-porphyrin assemblies have great potential in their use as biomaterials owing largely to their environmentally responsive properties. We have succ...
A direct transfer patterning process is presented that allows metallic patterns to be stamped onto a contoured substrate. This process was used to make some of the most efficient electrically small an...
The directed self-assembly of block copolymers (BCPs) is a promising route to generate highly ordered arrays of sub-10 nm features. Ultradense arrays of a monolayer of spherical microdomains or cylin...
DNA strands have been used as templates for the self-assembly of smooth and conductive cuprous oxide (Cu(2)O) nanowires of diameter 12-23 nm and whose length is determined by the template (16 μm fo...
The aim of this study is to survey melanocytes in the ability of self-assembly on biomaterials and functional analysis in vitro. Also, this study may provide a better way for treatment of...

Two patient warming systems will be compared with 40 patients each in a convective warming group (BairHugger, Arizant) and in a conductive warming group (HotDog, Augustine Biomedical)....
This study is designed to check the effect of the use of the ear popper device on serous otitis media in children and on the conductive hearing loss accompanying the otitis. It is intended...
This is a research study because it is commonly observed that sleep in its quantity and quality is influenced by the type of mattress used at night. A recent study in patients with back pa...
