Researchers have created a polymer-based photodetector that can be stretched by up to 200% without significantly losing its conductivity.

Researchers have discovered that silica nanoparticles coated in polymer chains that are not too short or too long can produce extremely tough films.

By incorporating soft joints, researchers have created a new type of porous, carbon-based crystals that can stretch to more than twice their length.

Researchers have developed a polymer hydrogel that looks and feels like a squishy jelly, but acts like an ultra-hard, shatterproof glass when compressed.

Using a combination of heat and pressure, researchers have turned the spherical fullerenes known as buckyballs into an ultrahard diamond glass.
