Nanocrystalline copper can't go flat out

High-resolution study of a nanocrystalline copper surface reveals a pattern of tilted grains creating a landscape of valleys and ridges.

Superstructures can form at grain boundaries in polycrystalline alloys

Scientists have unexpectedly discovered ordered, segregation-induced superstructures at general grain boundaries in polycrystalline alloys.

Coating paper with gold nanoparticles produces a flexible supercapacitor that could be used to help power wearable devices.

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

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.
