09/2019Paper featured on the front cover page of Advanced Engineering Materials
Our paper on the realization of highly compliant heaters for cancer treatment is highlighted with a front cover page of Advanced Engineering Materials.

In this work, we developed an implantable, highly compliant device for targeted heating of internal organs. The device is fabricated on a 6-µm-thick polymeric foil, which seamlessly conforms even to a soft liver tissue and allows for precisely controlled heating without on-site rigid parts. We study various heat impact scenarios on healthy and cancerous tissues using autochthonous murine models.

This work is the result of a fruitful cooperation between the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V. and Hannover Medical School (groups of Dr. T. Yevsa and Dr. Dr. A. Potthoff).

01/2019Paper featured on the back cover page of Physica Status Solidi (RRL) - Rapid Research Letter
Our paper on the experimental and theoretical study of curvature effects in parabolic nanostripes is highlighted with a back cover page of Physica Status Solidi (RRL) - Rapid Research Letter.

In this work we present experimental and theoretical study of curvature-driven changes of static magnetic properties in parabolic nanostripes. We demonstrate the influence of geometrical parameters on the equilibrium magnetic states for the large range of the parabolic stripe geometries. We established experimentally and numerically that the homogeneous magnetic distribution along the parabolic stripe is the equilibrium state for the entire range of investigated geometrical parameters.

This work is the result of a fruitful cooperation between the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V. and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (group of Dr. Florian Kronast).
