The diagram above shows a cross section of the zebrafish lens. Lens epithelium covers the anterior half of lens fiber core and ends at the peripheral zone which is roughly at the equator of the lens. At this boundary cell proliferation gives way to...

In more acidic, low pH environments, nanosheets flatten. In more basic, high-pH environments, nanosheets roll into tight scrolls. Depending on the shape morphing of the nanosheet, near-infrared light strikes the shape differently, deflecting a different...
