A novel model derived from more than 400 computer simulations of natural composite materials can help scientists develop synthetic versions.

With 3D printing, researchers have created a metamaterial from cubic building blocks that rotates about its axis in response to compression forces.

By studying an unprecedented range of disordered solids, scientists have defined a parameter called 'softness’ that can predict the location of defects.

Scientists have developed a technique for combining carbon nanotubes with ceramics and polymers to form novel composite materials.

Graphene’s unique properties makes it a potential candidate for transparent, stretchable electronics in displays, wearable health monitors, or soft robots.

Why don’t tree frogs slip off wet leaves? The answer lies in their sticky toe pads, which are made up of a mixture of hard and soft materials.

Atomically precise heterojunctions in graphene nanoribbons could enable the design of a new generation of more efficient and powerful nanoelectronics
