‘Jiggle and wiggle’ simulations explain metal strength

Using dynamic atomistic simulations, researchers have resolved every ‘jiggle and wiggle’ of atomic motion that underlies metal strength.

Researchers have shown how laser light can be used to forge graphene into 3D objects such as a pyramid.

Scientists have discovered a two-dimensional alloy with an optical bandgap that can be tuned by the temperature used to grow the alloy.

Computer simulations predict that crystallized aluminum with a diamond-like structure would have a lower density than water.

A new study shows that defects in the crystal lattice of insulating metal oxides could be key to their use in a variety of high-tech applications.

Using zirconium-based nanoparticles, researchers have developed a novel technique for successfully 3D printing high-strength alloys.

A new study shows that animals spin silk by pulling rather than pushing it out of their bodies, which could improve the processing of synthetic materials.

A thin layer of oxidation on graphene-wrapped magnesium nanoparticles can enhance rather than hinder their hydrogen storage.

A polymer ink for 3D printing that expands after it solidifies can produce printable structures that spontaneously fold themselves up.

Scientists have discovered that stable glasses can possess optical properties such as birefringence that are usually only found in ordered materials.

Self-assembling nanoparticle arrays that change between a mirror and a window.

By controlling the distance between nanoparticles in a single layer, researchers have made a filter that can change between reflecting and transparent.

By altering the proportion of the ingredients in a lithium-based material, scientists have found a good candidate for a solid-state electrolyte.
