Explaining the stripes of the zebra

25 November 2015

Researchers from Delft University of Technology have made steps to explain how spatial patterns, like the stripes on a zebra, emerge in a population of cells. This enables them to predict certain spatial patterns without having complete information about what each of the millions of cells are doing. The researchers published their findings in Cell Systems on 25 November 2015.Continue

Intelligent quantum sensor measures magnetic fields with 100 times higher precision

16 November 2015

Magnetic field sensors have important applications in our daily lives. The MRI scanners used in hospitals detect the small magnetic fields generated in our body, enabling images with the spatial resolution of one tenth of a millimetre to be created. Magnetic field sensors are also used to retrieve the information encoded in the hard-drives of computers. It is now even possible to measure the...Continue
