Lamps With A 3D Effect

Lamps With A 3D Effect 

Marcus Tremento is has an original lighting idea here. He’s created LD Sconces, intriguing lighting fixtures that conjure up uncanny 3D effects with glowing wire. Bending neon-like pieces of cool-running electroluminescent wire into familiar shapes and then combining them with a mirror-like backdrop, the artist proves himself to be quite the illusionista.

Crystal Biosensors To Contribute To Drug Development

Crystal Biosensors To Contribute To Drug Development 

Scientists from the University of Illinois have developed photonic crystal biosensors that would contribute a great deal to drug development, by detecting DNA-protein interactions. The physical setup of the biosensors include a low RI (refractive index) polymer grating that has an outer film coating of high RI Titanium Oxide. Above the film sits a standard microplate with 384 wells. Essentially, each well will have a biosensor at its base and will act like a test tube where DNA-protein reactions are studied.
