Novel Circuit Design Boosts Wearable Thermoelectric Generators

Because of their symmetrical fractal wiring patterns, the devices can be cut to the size needed to provide the voltage and power requirements for specific applications. The modular generators could be inkjet printed on flexible substrates, including fabric, and manufactured using inexpensive roll-to-roll techniques. "The attraction of thermoelectric generators is that

PET imaging tracks Zika virus infection, disease progression in mouse model

Small-animal imaging has become an important research tool for preclinical studies of infectious diseases, according to senior author Thomas M. Bocan, Ph.D., of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). "Traditional methods of infectious disease research using animal models have provided limited information about disease progression until the

Diagnostic Radiation Exposure Safe for Children, Experts State

The hypothesis referred to is the linear no-threshold hypothesis (LNT) promoted by Nobel Laureate Hermann Muller in 1946. Muller stated that the dose-response relationship is linear with no threshold dose, i.e., all radiation is harmful, regardless of how low the dose and dose rate. "The underlying intent of lowering future cancer
