Researchers Use Liquid Metal To Build 3-D Structures
2013-07-09 14:28:19

North Carolina State University [ Watch The Video 3D Printing of Liquid Metals at Room Temperature ] Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed three-dimensional (3-D) printing technology and techniques to create free-standing structures made of liquid metal at room temperature. "It's difficult to create structures out of liquids, because liquids want to bead up. But we've found that a liquid metal alloy of gallium and indium reacts to the oxygen in the air at...

New material a boon for use in electronics and thin films In a move that would make the Alchemists of King Arthur's time green with envy, scientists have unraveled the formula for turning liquid cement into liquid metal. This makes cement a semi-conductor and opens up its use in the profitable consumer electronics marketplace for thin films, protective coatings, and computer chips. "This new material has lots of applications including as thin-film resistors used in liquid-crystal...

Liquid Metals Have Different Breaking Points
2012-11-26 08:55:23

DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Mathematical methods developed by a Berkeley Lab researcher help explain why liquid metals have wildly different breaking points, depending on how they are made Metallic glass alloys (or liquid metals) are three times stronger than the best industrial steel, but can be molded into complex shapes with the same ease as plastic. These materials are highly resistant to scratching, denting, shattering and corrosion. So far, they have been used in a...

Apple Renews Liquidmetal Contract

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com It´s the rumor that refuses to die: Apple will one day make everything out of Liquidmetal. That´ll show ℠em. Like the material itself, these rumors are strong, resilient, and easily formed into any shape analysts want. So far, we´ve seen rumors about a Liquidmetal iPhone, an iPhone with Liquidmetal components, Liquidmetal Macs and even a Liquidmetal Rumored Apple Television. Helping drive these rumors is the fact Apple actually has...

Scientists Create Self-Healing Electronic Chips
2011-12-22 13:35:25

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign say they are a step closer to developing electronic chips that heal themselves. The scientists created a circuit that heals itself when cracked by using a liquid metal that restored conductivity. They said their work could eventually lead to longer-lasting gadgets, as well as helping out in spacecrafts “Rather than having to build in redundancies or to build in a sensory diagnostics system, this material is designed...

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a faster, easier way to create microelectrodes, for use in microfluidic devices, by using liquid metal. Microfluidic devices manipulate small amounts of fluid and have a wide variety of applications, from testing minute blood samples to performing advanced chemical research. "By making it easier to incorporate electrodes into microfluidic devices, we hope to facilitate research and development into new technologies that utilize...
