    Manipulation of neuronal activity using two-photon excitation of azobenzene photoswitches with near-infrared light has been recently demonstrated, but their practical use in neuronal tissue to photostimulate individual ...
  • An energy-preserving level set method for multiphase flows 

    Valle Marchante, Nicolás; Trias Miquel, Francesc Xavier; Castro González, Jesús (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The computation of multiphase flows presents a subtle energetic equilibrium between potential (i.e., surface) and kinetic energies. The use of traditional interface-capturing schemes provides no control over such a dynamic ...
  • Direction Selectivity in Drosophila Proprioceptors Requires the Mechanosensory Channel Tmc 

    He, Liping; Gulyanon, Sarun; Skanata, Mirna Mihovilovic; Karagyozov, Doycho; Heckscher, Ellie S.; Krieg, Michae; Tsechpenakis, Gavriil; Gershow, Marc; W. Daniel, Tracey, Jr (Sciencedirect, 2019-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Drosophila Transmembrane channel-like (Tmc) is a protein that functions in larval proprioception. The closely related TMC1 protein is required for mammalian hearing and is a pore-forming subunit of the hair cell ...
  • Atomic force microscopy-based mechanobiology 

    Krieg, Michael; Fläschner, Gotthold; Alsteens, David; Gaub, Benjamin M.; Roos, Wouter H.; Wuite, Gijs J. L.; Gaub, Hermann E.; Gerber, Christoph; Dufrêne, Yves F; Mülle, Daniel J. (Nature, 2018-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Mechanobiology emerges at the crossroads of medicine, biology, biophysics and engineering and describes how the responses of proteins, cells, tissues and organs to mechanical cues contribute to development, differentiation, ...
  • Imagen multiespectral polarizada para el diagnóstico del cáncer de piel 

    Rey Barroso, Laura; Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Peña Gutiérrez, Sara; Royo Royo, Santiago; Ares Rodríguez, Miguel; Puig, Susana; Malvehy Guilera, Josep; Pellacani, Giovanni; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (Universidad de Jaén, 2019)

  • Polarized multispectral imaging for the diagnosis of skin cancer 

    Rey Barroso, Laura; Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Royo Royo, Santiago; Puig, Susana; Malvehy Guilera, Josep; Pellacani, Giovanni; Delpueyo, Xana; Peña Gutiérrez, Sara; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T), 2019)
    Conference lecture

    The effective and non-invasive diagnosis of skin cancer is a hot topic in biophotonics since the current gold standard, a biopsy, is slow and costly. Non-invasive optical techniques such as polarization and multispectral ...
  • Mass sensing for the advanced fabrication of nanomechanical resonators 

    Gruber, G.; Urgell, C.; Tavernarakis, A.; Stavrinadis, A.; Tepsic, S.; Magén, C.; Sangiao, S.; Teresa, J. M. de; Verlot, P.; Bachtold, A. (ACS, 2019-09-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    We report on a nanomechanical engineering method to monitor matter growth in real time via e-beam electromechanical coupling. This method relies on the exceptional mass sensing capabilities of nanomechanical resonators. ...

    Nanomechanical resonators have emerged as sensors with exceptional sensitivities. These sensing capabilities open new possibilities in the studies of the thermodynamic properties in condensed matter. Here, we use mechanical ...
  • Collection grid optimization of a floating offshore wind farm using particle swarm theory 

    Lerch, Markus; Prada Gil, Mikel de; Molins i Borrell, Climent (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2019-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Floating substructures for offshore wind turbines is a promising solution in order to harness the vast wind potential of deep water sites where bottom-fixed turbines are not feasible. The electrical system of large scale ...
  • LoRaMoto: a LoRa-based communication system for coordinated response in an earthquake aftermath (excerpt) 

    Pueyo Centelles, Roger; Freitag, Fèlix; Meseguer Pallarès, Roc; Navarro Moldes, Leandro (2019-07-26)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Response of emergency units after natural disasters, such as earthquakes, has to be coordinated, fast and efficient in order to rescue and care for the victims, keeping all the population –and the units themselves– safe ...
