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

Glassy carbon proves strong under pressure

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.
