A new magnetic shape-memory polymer can be transformed into a variety of different shapes with magnetic fields and then be locked into place.

Bonding sensitive rubber to electronic components

Researchers have developed a new copper-titanium alloy for 3D printing that is much less prone to cracking or distortion than other titanium alloys.

A synthetic actuator made from thermo-responsive liquid crystal polymer networks and a coat of dye can learn to bend and walk in response to light.

This year JALCOM celebrates it’s 60 anniversary with a special issue.

A 1% bend in an organic semiconductor based on single crystals of the hydrocarbon rubrene can roughly double the speed of electrons flowing through it.

Using 3D printing technology, scientists have developed an efficient elastocaloric cooling material made from a nickel-titanium alloy,
