Transmission electron microscopy study of the cell–sensor interface
An emerging number of micro- and nanoelectronics-based biosensors have been developed for non-invasive recordings of physiological cellular activity. The interface between the biological system andExpand

Novel fusogenic liposomes for fluorescent cell labeling and membrane modification.
Efficient delivery of biomolecules into membranes of living cells as well as cell surface modifications are major biotechnological challenges. Here, novel liposome systems based on neutral andExpand

Mechanical properties of bare and protein-coated giant unilamellar phospholipid vesicles. A comparative study of micropipet aspiration and atomic force microscopy.
In this study, protein-coated giant phospholipid vesicles were used to model cell plasma membranes coated by surface protein layers that increase membrane stiffness under mechanical or osmoticExpand

Adhesion: role of bulk viscoelasticity and surface roughness.
We study the adhesion between smooth polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) rubber balls and smooth and rough poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) surfaces, and between smooth silicon nitride balls and smooth PDMSExpand

The thermodynamics of electrochemical annealing
Abstract We show that on solid electrodes held at constant potential in an electrolyte all defect formation energies and activation energies for surface transport become potential dependent. TheExpand

Rubber friction: Comparison of theory with experiment
We have measured the friction force acting on a rubber block slid on a concrete surface. We used both unfilled and filled (with carbon black) styrene butadiene (SB) rubber and have varied theExpand

On pattern transfer in replica molding.
Nano- and micromolding of elastic materials produces smoothed replicas of the mold structures. This limits the technique's resolution. Here we identified surface tension as the cause of smoothing andExpand

Monodisperse gold nanoparticles formed on bacterial crystalline surface layers (S-layers) by electroless deposition
The fabrication of patterned arrays of nanoparticles whose electronic, optical and magnetic properties will find technological applications, such as ultra-high-density memories, is currently one ofExpand

Diatom frustules show increased mechanical strength and altered valve morphology under iron limitation
Iron limitation often results in increased cellular silica contents of diatoms, suggesting that diatoms grow thicker and possibly mechanically stronger frustules when limited. We performed stabilityExpand
