By aligning them and improving their conductivity, researchers have enhanced the piezoelectric properties of peptide-based nanotubes.

Material that can be 3D-printed into any shape and pre-programmed with reversible shape memory

Assessment of state of play of renewable and sustainable fabrics derived from fungi

Researchers have developed a wool-derived biomaterial that can be 3D-printed into any shape and pre-programmed with reversible shape memory.

Adding elliptical holes to elastic materials can enhance their efficiency at converting elastic energy to kinetic energy for extreme velocity movements.

A material known as organic manganese halide can make an environmentally friendly, low-cost, flexible X-ray scintillator.

A nanocomposite made from molybdenum disulfide and reduced graphene oxide can be used to make a sensitive, stretchable gas sensor.

For the first time, researchers have developed a way to measure the individual solid-like and liquid-like behaviors of soft materials separately.

Using a wet spinning process, researchers have produced carbon nanotube fibers that are stronger than Kevlar and almost as conductive as copper.

Researchers have discovered that the clubs used by mantis shrimp have a uniquely designed nanoparticle coating that absorbs and dissipates energy.

Researchers have found that cooling graphene while it is attached to a flat surface will cause it to buckle, altering its electronic properties.

Scintillating sintering improved

By studying shaving with a scanning electron microscope, engineers have determined how a razor blade can be damaged as it cuts human hair.
