News
 

Inspired by animal chirps, engineers have devised a faster and more accurate rheological technique for measuring the properties of soft materials.

News
 

Scientists have used magnetic fields to create liquid crystal elastomers that can move in any direction in response to multiple types of stimuli.

News
 

Scientists have developed a liquid crystal elastomer with auxetic properties, meaning it gets thicker when stretched.

Echolocation for soft materials

News
 

Researchers have accomplished the first detailed high-speed imaging and analysis of the process that occurs when a microparticle impacts a surface.

News
 

making tiny, nanoscale holes into graphene sheets and removing them again could hold the key to manufacturing high-quality structures

News
 

By using multicomponent intermetallic nanoparticles, scientists have developed new high-strength alloys that are both strong and flexible.

News
 

A new class of carbides containing five different metallic elements are predicted to be among the hardest materials with the highest melting points.

Feature
 

Carbon fiber plastics reinforced no longer have to be incinerated or sent to landfill but can be recycled and reused.

News
 

New simulations suggest that modifying graphene with oxygen-lined pores will allow it to act as a tunable filter for ions in a liquid.
