Paper on “materials farming” published in Science

Scientists from Germany, Israel and Austria have demonstrated for the first time the growth of cotton fibers with integrated fluorescence or magnetism. Physicists from the Institute of Physics at MU Leoben confirmed with X-ray scattering that these functionalities are directly incorporated into the cellulose fibers.
