“Magnesium is such a new technology, it doesn’t have any good liquid electrolytes,” says Gerbrand Ceder, co-author of a paper describing the new device. “We thought, why not leapfrog and make a solid-state electrolyte?”
The process looks something like a hi-tech sewing machine weaving an emblem onto a garment.
But soon the pattern begins to rise and swell, and a nose, constructed using a bio-ink containing real human cells, grows upwards from the glass, glowing brightly under an ultraviolet light.
n research described in the journal Nature Photonics, the Turkey-based researchers have developed a 3D laser fabrication technique that deliberately creates the conditions for exploiting these interactions, known as nonlinear feedback mechanisms.
Scientists Armed With Lasers Capture 3D Images O Neurons ‘Firing’ In The Brain In Research Breakthrough

A quantum theory first proposed nearly 90 years ago has at last been confirmed, potentially galvanising new approaches in fields as diverse as medical biosensing and solar energy storage.
A new type of ultra-thin solar panel made from living organisms could lead to next-generation electrical devices that can be made on a home printer, researchers say.
