Brazilian scientists have developed an innovation that can be used in sensors to monitor brain function with even greater sensitivity than existing devices.
A simple and affordable solution developed by researchers at CeRTEV and a Nigerian collaborator eliminates even multi-resistant bacteria. Clay, papaya seeds and banana peel are among the raw materials used by the group.
Researchers at CeRTEV simplifies and cheapens the fabrication of glass-ceramic material that can be used in ocular prosthetics and dentin hypersensitivity treatment, among other applications.
A study by researchers at CeRTEV can help scientists develop new glass and glass-ceramic materials and predict glass stability during use.
Scientists linked to a FAPESP-funded research center author six of the 25 most downloaded papers from the website of Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, a prestigious publication on amorphous and glassy materials
Glass is a non-equilibrium, non-crystalline state of matter that appears solid on a short time scale but relaxes toward the liquid state. New definition was published in the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids
Research strategies and global database on glass properties presented at Advanced School on Glasses and Glass-Ceramics
Biosilicate is also being tested in ocular implants and artificial middle ear ossicles
