New research reveals that when spraying metal coatings, melting hinders rather than helps.

Printed schwarzites retain their strength at any scale

Using 3D printers, engineers have turned formerly theoretical structures known as schwarzites into strong, light materials with repeating patterns.

Graphene’s unique properties makes it a potential candidate for transparent, stretchable electronics in displays, wearable health monitors, or soft robots.

Why don’t tree frogs slip off wet leaves? The answer lies in their sticky toe pads, which are made up of a mixture of hard and soft materials.

Atomically precise heterojunctions in graphene nanoribbons could enable the design of a new generation of more efficient and powerful nanoelectronics

Self-healing composite has good mechanical properties and can be produced by conventional processing tools.

Overcoming the technical challenges of achieving extreme fast charging for electric vehicles.

By taking advantage of electrostatic charge, scientists have induced synthetic polymers to self-assemble in a defined sequence, just like proteins.

3D piezoelectric fibrous scaffold stimulate stem cell differentiation and tissue formation.

Nanoscale patterns in metals known as nanotwins can stabilize defects associated with repetitive strain and limit the build-up of fatigue-related damage.

A simple method for manufacturing extremely low-density palladium nanofoams could help advance hydrogen storage technologies.

Inspired by the polymeric threads used by marine mussels, scientists have developed an elastomeric polymer that is both flexible and strong.

Scientists have discovered that, contrary to expectations, a material's crystal grains can sometimes slide along a coherent twin boundary.
