‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

A hot-drawing technique for processing plastics can create transparent polythene film that is stronger than aluminium but a fraction of the weight.

Scientists have developed a novel 3D printing process for fabricating flexible conducting fibers on textiles, which can be used to harvest energy.

Engineers have used 4D printing to produce smart materials that can change from stiff to soft in response to temperature changes.

A new dual-polymer hydrogel able to respond dynamically to its environment could find use in a variety of ‘soft robotic’ and biomedical applications.

‘living glue’ inspired by marine organisms like barnacles and mussels works underwater or in highly damp or humid conditions

underbelly of lobsters could hold clue to developing a tough, strong and flexible material for body armor and other applications

ultrafast X-ray imaging gives an insight into exactly what is happening during additive manufacturing of metal structures

Improved metal cutting for defense, vehicles and health products

Acoustic metamaterial structure blocks 94% of sound

Researchers have discovered that a high-strength polymer called PBDT has a rare double-helix structure.

A new nanocrystalline tungsten-tantalum-vanadium-chromium alloy can withstand unprecedented amounts of radiation without fracturing.

Researchers have identified how and when gas pockets form in metal products created by a type of 3D printing called Laser Power Bed Fusion.

Researchers have developed a novel fiber comprising a gallium metal core surrounded by an elastic polymer sheath that is both strong and tough.

Two new reports, now available for download.

Scientists have shown that applying strain to thin metal sheets can increase their catalytic ability by 10 to 20 times.

An anode made from a combination of silicon and the 2D material MXene could extend the life of lithium-ion batteries by as much as five times.
