Turning over a new leaf in resistive switching devices

common household plant, Golden Pothos, shows unusual electrical response that could be harnessed in resistive memory devices

Researchers have found a way to turn a middling monomer into a tough polymer that can still be depolymerized back to the monomer state.

Researchers have developed nanofibers where energy can take advantage of quantum mechanics to move thousands of times faster than normal.

heat/light-responsive hydrogel useful for soft robots that mimic the function and movement of living organisms

Researchers have developed a simplified mathematical model of a complex phenomenon in crack propagation known as the velocity jump.

Discovery of New Nonlinear Optical Materials

A novel technique that uses blasts of ultrasound to help recycle silver nanowires in electronic devices could work with many other nanomaterials.

Making self-adjusting materials systems with standard 3D printers
