How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The collagen-based tissues of animals are hierarchical structures: even tendon, the simplest collagenous tissue, has seven to eight levels of hierarchy. Tailoring tissue structure to match physiological function can occur at many different levels. We wanted to know if the control of tissue architecture to achieve function extends down to the nanosc...

We report on a simple way to directly measure the Gouy phase shift of a strongly focused laser beam. This is accomplished by using a recent technique, namely, interferometric second-harmonic generation. We expect that this method will be of interest in a wide range of research fields, from high-harmonic and attosecond pulse generation to femtochemi...

Collagen is the primary structural protein in animals. Serving as nanoscale biological ropes, collagen fibrils are responsible for providing strength to a variety of connective tissues such as tendon, skin, and bone. Understanding structure-function relationships in collagenous tissues requires the ability to conduct a variety of mechanical experim...

Collagen fibrils play an important role in the human body, providing tensile strength to connective tissues. These fibrils are characterized by a banding pattern with a D-period of 67 nm. The proposed origin of the D-period is the internal staggering of tropocollagen molecules within the fibril, leading to gap and overlap regions and a correspondin...

Magnetometry and magnetoresistance measurements in MnSi thin films and rigorous analytical solutions of the micromagnetic equations show that the field-induced unwinding of confined helicoids occurs via discrete steps. A comparison between the magnetometry data and theoretical results shows that finite size effects confine the wavelength and lead t...

A detailed investigation of the magnetization processes in epitaxial MnSi thin film reveals the existence of elliptically distorted skyrmion strings that lie in the plane of the film. We provide proof that the uniaxial anisotropy stabilizes this state over extended regions of the magnetic phase diagram. Theoretical analysis of an observed cascade o...
