Novel conductive coating keeps fingers nice and toasty

Using a coating of conductive polymer, scientists have come up with a new technique for creating electrically heated clothing such as gloves.

‘Jiggle and wiggle’ simulations explain metal strength

Using dynamic atomistic simulations, researchers have resolved every ‘jiggle and wiggle’ of atomic motion that underlies metal strength.

A new 2D film made of polymers and nanoparticles can direct two different non-mixing liquids into a variety of exotic architectures.

Frictional, structural, and mechanical studies of hind leg femur-tibia joint of katydids reveals novel antifriction and antiwear properties.

Using zirconium-based nanoparticles, researchers have developed a novel technique for successfully 3D printing high-strength alloys.

Micrometer-sized particles can be used to stabilize beer foam, and could also lead to the development of advanced functional materials.

A new study shows that animals spin silk by pulling rather than pushing it out of their bodies, which could improve the processing of synthetic materials.

A polymer ink for 3D printing that expands after it solidifies can produce printable structures that spontaneously fold themselves up.

Scientists have discovered that stable glasses can possess optical properties such as birefringence that are usually only found in ordered materials.

Glassy carbon is lightweight, ultrastrong, very hard, elastic, and electrically conductive and is ideal for military armor and aerospace applications.

A single study has found that graphene displays superlubricity and that hexagonal boron nitride is as strong as diamond but lighter and more flexible.

Using a compound derived from seaweed, engineers have developed a technique for making 3D-printed biomaterials that can degrade on demand.

Molybdenum disulfide as nano-actuator material.

Scientists have shown that repeated cycles of heating and cooling offer a cheap way to produce single-crystal metals.
