Topological Soft Materials for All-Optic Low Energy Photonics

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
The existing infrastructure for managing the flow of information along the photonic pathways and in our computers is in most segments based on electrically encoded information and the transport of electric charges using the electric force. This process is limiting the speed of signal propagation and is costly in terms of energy dissipation. The predicted worldwide energy consumption of data centers for 2050 is approaching the electric energy generated in the European Union in 2010! It is...

biosights: January 21, 2013 - How cell shape changes unfold

submitted by: JCB
Under certain conditions, cells form protrusions that oscillate rapidly around the cell periphery. Kapustina et al. reveal that these oscillatory protrusions, which may be related to processes involved in amoeboid cell migration, are driven by the cyclic folding and unfolding of the plasma membrane and its underlying actin cortex. This biosights episode presents the paper by Kapustina et al. from the January 7, 2013, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview with lead...
