Mechanical properties news

By combining electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy, researchers have been able to watch the growth of lithium dendrites.

For the first time, researchers have been able to grow, image with atomic resolution and investigate the properties of 2D amorphous carbon.

A plant-based adhesive can repair itself if damaged and could be more green than conventional glues

A new method for the solid-state thermal processing of silk allows the biopolymer to be molded directly into bulk parts with tunable properties.

Turning natural atomic flaws inside diamond anvils into quantum sensors offers a novel way to study the effects of pressure on materials.

A new magnetic shape-memory polymer can be transformed into a variety of different shapes with magnetic fields and then be locked into place.

Bonding sensitive rubber to electronic components

Researchers have developed a new copper-titanium alloy for 3D printing that is much less prone to cracking or distortion than other titanium alloys.

A synthetic actuator made from thermo-responsive liquid crystal polymer networks and a coat of dye can learn to bend and walk in response to light.

This year JALCOM celebrates it’s 60 anniversary with a special issue.

A 1% bend in an organic semiconductor based on single crystals of the hydrocarbon rubrene can roughly double the speed of electrons flowing through it.

Using 3D printing technology, scientists have developed an efficient elastocaloric cooling material made from a nickel-titanium alloy,

Build a better biomimetic bone

highly porous polymer foam that mimic bone marrow drives the differentiation of blood-forming stem cells

CNTs produced from CO2 using low-energy chemical processes drastically reduce emissions associated with construction materials

Scientists have found that multilayer graphene is stiff when bent a little, but becomes much softer when bent a lot, as the layers slide past each other.

A lightweight polymer material full of holes, inspired by theoretical nanotube structures called tubulanes, is nearly as hard as diamond.

Stable materials can be created from disordered proteins by altering the environmental triggers that cause them to undergo phase transitions.
