The structuring of water near non-polar molecular fragments or surfaces mediates cohesive interactions (so-called hydrophobic interactions) that underlie a broad range of biophysical and materials-related phenomena. Substantial progress has been made during the past decade towards understanding hydrophobic interactions in simple model systems, but in most biological and technological contexts, non-polar domains are found in ...

Blindness can result from the loss of photoreceptors in retinal dystrophies or age-related macular degeneration. Electrical activation of the residual retinal neurons can restore some visual function in blind patients. However, the perception provided by current retinal prostheses does not allow face recognition or autonomous motion in an unknown environment. To reach these goals, Serge ...
