Did you know that crystals form the basis for the penetrating icy blue glare of car headlights and could be fundamental to the future in solar energy technology?
The lightweight skeletons of organisms such as sea sponges display a strength that far exceeds that of manmade products constructed from similar materials.
A new material structure predicted at Rice University offers the tantalizing possibility of a signal path smaller than the nanowires for advanced electronics now under development at Rice and elsewhere.
Nature is a master builder.
On May 13th 2011, the journal Science publishes a paper where scientists from RisÃ¸ DTU in collaboration with scientists from China and USA, report a new method for revealing a 3D picture of the structure inside a material.
New insights into why and how nanowires take the form they do will have profound implications for the development of future electronic components.
MÃ¶bius symmetry, the topological phenomenon that yields a half-twisted strip with two surfaces but only one side, has been a source of fascination since its discovery in 1858 by German mathematician August MÃ¶bius.
The change-over to lead-free products is in full progress.
Using a neutron beam as a probe, researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have begun to reveal the crystal structure of a compound essential to technologies ranging from sonar to computer memory.
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
