Conventional looms produce unconventional textiles

Researchers have developed flexible displays and smart fabrics that can be made on the same industrial looms used to make conventional textiles.

Mussels help produce synthetic spider silk

Using engineered mussel foot proteins, researchers have been able to produce synthetic spider silk that is stronger and tougher.

Researchers have developed a computational model that can predict which metal-organic frameworks will be most stable.

By embedding flexible, conductive materials into a polyester sheet, researchers have created origami robots that don't need computer chips.

Strong interactions between the layers of a stack of 2D polymers can helped that stack retain the high stiffness and strength of a single 2D polymer.
