Latest Advanced Materials Stories
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign say they are a step closer to developing electronic chips that heal themselves.
When one tiny circuit within an integrated chip cracks or fails, the whole chip – or even the whole device – is a loss.
Researchers have developed a bandage that stimulates and directs blood vessel growth on the surface of a wound.
"Shrilk" could one day replace plastic in consumer products, be used to suture wounds, and serve as scaffolding for tissue regeneration.
Researchers have demonstrated, for the first time, a graphene-based transistor array that is compatible with living biological cells and capable of recording the electrical signals they generate.
Although they found that graphene makes very good chemical sensors, researchers at Illinois have discovered an unexpected “twist”—that the sensors are better when the graphene is “worse”—more imperfections improved performance.
Nanowires of copper could eliminate busted cell phone screens and make solar cells more competitive with fossil fuels.
Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere, in smart phones, laptops, an array of other consumer electronics, and the newest electric cars.
Using a technique known as thermochemical nanolithography (TCNL), researchers have developed a new way to fabricate nanometer-scale ferroelectric structures directly on flexible plastic substrates that would be unable to withstand the processing temperatures normally required to create such nanostructures.
Computational Materials Science is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1992 and published monthly by Elsevier. As of May 2012, the editors-in-chief are H. Dreysse and S. Schmauder. The journal focuses on existing and new advanced materials and their applications. Coverage encompasses experimental research, in connection with computational modeling of materials properties and materials phenomena. Article topics also discuss synthesis, materials characterization, materials...
Advanced Materials is a peer-reviewed scientific journal founded in 1988 as a supplement in the general chemistry journal Angewandte Chemie and remained in that journal for the first 18 months of its existence. Peter Goelitz, editor of Angewandte Chemie, was the founding editor of Advanced Materials. The current editor is Peter Gregory (as of May 2012). This journal, published weekly, covers materials science. It includes Communications, Reviews, and Feature Articles on topics in...
Advanced Functional Materials is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2001 by Peter Gregory. It is published bimonthly by Wiley-VCH. The journal, however, has been in publication since 1985 under other titles, including Advanced Materials for Optics and Electronics. Advanced Functional Materials is the sister journal to Advanced Materials. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is David Flanagan. The journal covers all topics pertaining to materials science. Topics covered...
Science and Technology of Advanced Materials is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published bimonthly by the Institute of Physics, which also prints the journal. Prior to 2008, this journal was published by Elsevier. Printed volumes of this journal are, as of 2008, published free of charge by the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and the Institute of Physics. The journal was established in 2000. The journal covers all aspects of materials science, including theoretical...
