Plasmon spectroscopy answers key questions for future electronics

Mechanical neural networks develop muscle memory

Mechanical engineers have developed an artificial-intelligent material system that can learn behaviors over time and develop a ‘muscle memory’.

Some materials retain memory of previous stretching

Using light and a catalyst, researchers have been able to produce a soft and stretchy version and a hard and rigid version of the same polymer.

A new class of carbide materials is capable of producing tunable plasmonic properties while withstanding incredibly high temperatures.

The silk naturally produced by silkworms can be made 70% stronger than spider silks by removing a sticky outer layer and then manually spinning it.

Researchers have developed a shape-memory material made of ceramic rather than metal, which can operate at much higher temperatures.

Using stretchable semiconductor polymers, researchers have developed synaptic transistors that can act like neurons in the brain.
