Nitinol, a metal alloy which is able to remember (and return to with slight heating) the shape it had before it was deformed, is demonstrated to be useful in the Harrington rod treatment of scoliosis. A bent nitinol rod can return to its original straight length, applying both axial and lateral forces to the spine during the operation of postoperatively by(More)
Metal-assisted chemical etching (MACE) provides a versatile way to synthesize silicon nanowires of different morphologies. We used MACE to synthesize oxide-free porous and nonporous SiNW for the use in anodes for lithium-ion batteries. To improve their processing behavior the SiNW were functionalized using acrylic acid. Differential capacity plots were used(More)
