Cellular contact guidance through dynamic sensing of nanotopographies via actin polymerization waves
Many biological and physiological processes depend upon directed migration of cells, which is typically mediated by chemical or physical gradients. However, conventional chemical or physical gradients have finite dynamic ...
STUDYING LIQUID DYNAMICS WITH OPTICAL KERR EFFECT SPECTROSCOPY
Time-resolved optical Kerr effect (OKE) spectroscopy is an established tech-nique for studying the orientational dynamics of liquids. The reduced spectral density (RSD) obtained from transforming the OKE spectrum into the ...
N-METHYL-4-PICOLINIUM IODIDE ESTERS AS VISIBLE LIGHT PHOTOREMOVABLE PROTECTING GROUPS FOR CARBOXYLIC ACIDS
Facile photorelease of carboxylic acids is performed through charge-transfer excitation of N-methyl-4-picolinium iodide esters. Photolysis reactions are carried out under mild, biphasic solvent conditions using a household ...
CONSTRUCTING HYBRID NANOSTRUCTURES OUT OF NOBLE METALS AND SEMICONDUCTORS
Fabrication of complex hybrid nanostructures with tunable properties is desirable to fulfill functional applications in multidisciplinary areas. Manipulation of pre-designed nanostructure building blocks composed of distinct ...
Visualizing Quantum Reactive Scattering Dynamics
The Born-Oppenheimer approximation, which allows a decoupling of electronic and nuclear motion, underlies the investigation of molecular dynamics. In some cases this decoupling is not possible, so that nuclear motion can ...
