Printing Liquid Metal

Flexible conductors printed on elastic materials is possible using a liquid metal nanoparticle filled ink. A new class of metallic nanoparticles is likely to spawn breakthroughs in fields such as: soft robotics, conformable electronics, wireless communications, micro/nanofluidics, wearable/implantable devices, and energy storage and transport systems. Inkjet-printed liquid metal could bring wearable tech, soft robotics – […]

Nanoparticles Reverse Bone Loss in Mice

Silica nanoparticles not only suppress bone loss but also promote bone acretion. Silica Nanoparticles Partially Reverse Osteoporosis in Mice – [fightaging.org] At the small scale, bone structure is constantly remodeled throughout life. We lose bone mass and strength as we age, a condition known as osteoporosis, in part due to a systemic shift of the […]
