A. Liao, H. W. Harris and M. M. Maharbiz, “A Coupled Magnetoelastic Strain Sensor Array for Guiding and Monitoring Hernia Repairs,” IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering is out!

Congrats Amy Liao! A. Liao, H. W. Harris and M. M. Maharbiz, “A Coupled Magnetoelastic Strain Sensor Array for Guiding and Monitoring Hernia Repairs,” in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. doi: 10.1109/TBME.2018.2834361 Ventral hernia repairs using mesh prosthetics suffer from high recurrence rates, with 10-20% of repairs failing within three years. Uneven distribution of stress within…

Lu, Bochao, and Michel M. Maharbiz. “Germanium as a scalable sacrificial layer for nanoscale protein patterning.” PloS one 13.4 (2018) is out

Congratulations to Bochao Lu! Lu, Bochao, and Michel M. Maharbiz. “Germanium as a scalable sacrificial layer for nanoscale protein patterning.” PloS one 13.4 (2018). We demonstrate the use of germanium (Ge) films as water-soluble features that allow the patterning of proteins onto surfaces with commonly used organic solvents. This technique is scalable for manufacturing and is compatible…

Jonathan Tu has new flagella paper out in Phys Rev E

Decoupling translational and rotational effects on the phase synchronization of rotating helices The locomotion of swimming microorganisms often relies on synchronized motions; examples include the bundling of flagella and metachronal coordination of cilia. It is now generally accepted that such behavior can result from hydrodynamic interactions alone. In this paper we consider the interactions between…
