Applied scientists create wrinkled 'skin' on polymers
... like a tug-of-war, buckles the skin and forms the wrinkle
patterns." Such patterns can be used in the construction of microfluidic devices for particle separation and mixture and also have potential use in designing biosenors. The researchers have also started a close collaboration with scientists at the ...
Nanotechnology shows promise as next wrinkle fighter
...nt Corp. On all fronts, it's all about nailing a wrinkle
before it starts. "Everything starts at a really small scale, so if we can prevent the buckling at the very beginning ?at the nano level ?we can eliminate large scale wrinkles," Ilsoon said. "Wrinkles can initiate from the small scale, and when it ...

to proposals to mitigate climate change by fertilizing the oceans with iron--to promote blooms of photosynthetic marine plants and transfer more carbon dioxide from the air to the deep ocean. "The twilight zone is a critical link between the surfa...
