Mechanical properties news, October 2019

An alloy-based nanoparticle catalyst offers a greener route to producing a more robust version of a polymer used in bulletproof vests.

Researchers have gained new insights into high-entropy alloys by using X-ray spectroscopy to create atomic-resolution chemical maps of them.

Engineers have identified two aspects of the interaction between a metal and its alloying material that can predict how a particular alloy will behave.

Complex shape-shifting lattices composed of multiple elastomeric materials can grow or shrink in response to changes in temperature.

By simply adding a trace amount of copper, scientists have created the strongest ever silver without reducing its electrical conductivity.

Researchers have found that graphene has many of the same mechanical properties as 3D graphite and is significantly thicker than widely believed.

A new process termed ‘flash sintering’ can help overcome the brittle nature of ceramics and make them more ductile and durable.

novel electroluminescent device uses flexible, electrically conductive Ag-coated nylon fibers embedded in a PDMS + ZnS composite as electrodes

Researchers have created a net-like structure, called a ‘nanochain’, of antimony, which can enhance lithium-ion charge capacity in batteries.

Researchers have shown that ultrasonic waves produced by an acoustic transducer can manipulate the viscosity of shear-thickening materials.

A silicone polymer embedded with temperature-sensitive dyes and liquid metal wires can carry out simple logic functions in response to touch.
