Scientists have developed a model that draws on oxidation kinetics to explain how stress affects the formation and spread of oxide layers in alloys.

News
 

An artificial intelligence system has discovered three new metallic glass materials 200 times faster than could be done before.

News
 

Researchers have developed a smooth, durable, clear polymer coating that swiftly sheds water, oils, alcohols and even peanut butter.

News
 

Using caffeine as a catalyst, researchers have devised a way to create gummy, biocompatible gels that could be used for medical applications.

News
 

A proposed new state of matter termed a ‘superfluid quasicrystal’ should should flow without friction while exhibiting a nonperiodic structure.

News
 

A novel smart ink can produce 3D objects that change shape and color, such as reducing to 1% their original size with 10-times the resolution.

News
 

A solid oxide protective coating for metals, when applied in sufficiently thin layers, can deform as if it were a liquid, filling any cracks and gaps.

News
 

Inspired by a version of origami called kirigami, researchers have developed malleable electronic circuits that can be bent and twisted.

News
 

Scientists have discovered that a barium-iron-arsenic superconductor changes its magnetic properties when put under mechanical strain.

News
 

Scientists have furthered their understanding of how, when and where the atoms in molten metal ‘lock’ into place during the production of metallic glass.
