A number of studies have investigated the behavior of neurons on microfabricated topography for the purpose of developing interfaces for use in neural engineering applications. However, there have been few studies simultaneously exploring the effects of topographies having various feature sizes and shapes on axon growth and polarization in the first 24 h.(More)
PURPOSE Understanding how surface features influence the establishment and outgrowth of the axon of developing neurons at the single cell level may aid in designing implantable scaffolds for the regeneration of damaged nerves. Past studies have shown that micropatterned ridge-groove structures not only instigate axon polarization, alignment, and extension,(More)
Among its many outstanding properties, graphene supports terahertz surface plasma waves – sub-wavelength charge density oscillations connected with electromagnetic fields that are tightly localized near the surface[1, 2]. When these waves are confined to finite-sized graphene, plasmon resonances emerge that are characterized by alternating charge(More)
