A polymer gel that incorporates chloroplasts from plants can react with carbon dioxide in the air to grow, strengthen and even repair itself.

A novel light-based atomic force microscopy technique can measure how and where a material's physical properties change during 3D printing.

simple method produces centimeter-sized single crystals of organolead halide perovskites

Engineers have developed a graphene-based technique for fabricating ultrathin, flexible semiconducting films from exotic materials.

A bio-inspired soft material can alter its properties by self-assembling into molecular superstructures and then disassembling on demand.

Scientists have found that the protective oxide films that form on metals can trap other atoms inside them, which influence many of the film’s properties.
