Magnetic self-assembly of three-dimensional surfaces from planar sheets


, : Magnetic self-assembly of three-dimensional surfaces from planar sheets. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 102(11): 3924-3929

This report describes the spontaneous folding of flat elastomeric sheets, patterned with magnetic dipoles, into free-standing, 3D objects that are the topological equivalents of spherical shells. The path of the self-assembly is determined by a competition between mechanical and magnetic interactions.

Pyrimethamine resistance in Plasmodium falciparum has previously been shown to have emerged once in Southeast Asia, from where it spread to Africa. Pyrimethamine resistance in this parasite is known to be conferred by mutations in the gene encodi...
