Fractal Interconnects for Neuro-Electronic Interfaces, Including Artificial Retinas
In conditions such as macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa, impaired vision is caused by a loss of function in the photoreceptor cells (the rods and cones), which lie within the retina at the back of the eye. However, the rest of the visual system, including the optic nerve and the visual processing centers in the brain, remain intact. If ...

Heterometallic Group 13 Keggin-like Nanoclusters
The Johnson research group has developed a high-yielding synthetic strategy for preparing discrete polynuclear inorganic clusters containing thirteen Group 13 metals (Al, Ga, In) in a Keggin-like structure. Seven of the metal ions comprise the interior core, arranged in a flat hexagonal disc and bridged by hydroxo ligands. The remaining six m...
