OLCF and Stony Brook: Using HPC Simulations to Discover How Cicada Wings Kill Bacteria – Performance Computing News Analysis | insideHPC

Over the past decade, teams of engineers, chemists and biologists have analyzed the physical and chemical properties of cicada wings, hoping to unlock the secret to their ability to kill microbes on contact. If this function of nature can be replicated by science, it could lead to products with inherently antibacterial surfaces that are more … Read more
