The lightweight skeletons of organisms such as sea sponges display a strength that far exceeds that of manmade products constructed from similar materials.
Microscopic tears in a new kind of man-made material may actually help the substance bulk up like a bodybuilder at the gym.
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.
Scientists have for the first time visualised the transformation of powder mixtures into molten glass.
PCC claims there are often advantages of liquid over solid concentrates including lower let down ratios, better thermal stability, reduced storage space requirements and versatility in formulations.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed the first functional oxide thin films that can be used efficiently in electronics, opening the door to an array of new high-power devices and smart sensors.
The new measurements, by UCLA physics professor Giovanni Zocchi and former UCLA physics graduate student Yong Wang, are approximately 100 times higher in resolution than previous mechanical measurements, a nanotechnology feat which reveals an isolated protein molecule, surprisingly, is neither a solid nor a liquid.
Scientists have discovered that a class of materials known to convert heat to electricity and vice versa behaves quite unexpectedly at the nanoscale in response to changes in temperature.
NEWARK, Del., May 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc.
Johns Hopkins materials scientists have found a new use for a chemical compound that has traditionally been viewed as an electrical conductor, a substance that allows electricity to flow through it.
