Latest Advanced Materials Stories
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.
The pen may have bested the sword long ago, but now itâ€™s challenging wires and soldering irons.
A new kind of sensor could warn emergency workers when carbon filters in the respirators they wear to avoid inhaling toxic fumes have become dangerously saturated.
University of Maryland researchers have discovered a way to control magnetic properties of graphene that could lead to powerful new applications in magnetic storage and magnetic random access memory.
In the quest to develop flexible plastic electronics, one of the stumbling blocks has been creating transistors with enough stability for them to function in a variety of environments while still maintaining the current needed to power the devices.
Researchers from Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratory have developed a process capable of producing a thin and uniform light-absorbing layer on textured substrates that improves the efficiency of polymer solar cells by increasing light absorption.
The ability to tell the difference between crystals that formed naturally and those formed by human activity can be important to archaeologists in the field.
CLEVELAND, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- OM Group, Inc. (NYSE: OMG) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.
Researchers at Oregon State University have solved a quest in fundamental material science that has eluded scientists since the 1960s, and could form the basis of a new approach to electronics.
Twisting spires, concentric rings, and gracefully bending petals are a few of the new three-dimensional shapes that University of Michigan engineers can make from carbon nanotubes using a new manufacturing process.

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...
- Any of various tropical Old World birds of the family Indicatoridae, some species of which lead people or animals to the nests of wild honeybees. The birds eat the wax and larvae that remain after the nest has been destroyed for its honey.
