Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The combined hardness and toughness of bone cannot be explained by the mere mixture of proteins and calcium phosphate mineral. To solve this conundrum, a deeper insight into the structure of this remarkable material is required. Using advanced threedimensional nanoscale imaging of the mineral in human bone, we highlighted the importance of its structural organization.
