The anterior intermeniscal ligament (AIML) is an anatomically distinct structure that connects the anterior horns of the medial and lateral menisci. We hypothesized that both menisci work together as a unit in converting axial joint loading into circumferential hoop stresses, due to intermeniscal attachments. Therefore, loss of the AIML could lead to(More)
Self-assembly of one-dimensional surface structures is examined by tracking single Ir and Pd atoms on W(110) as they incorporate into chains of Ir and Pd, respectively. Ir adatoms move parallel to the chains, but do not come close to the chain sides; incorporation occurs only at the ends. Pd adatoms also migrate parallel to Pd chains, and incorporate at the(More)
