Latest Viscoelasticity Stories
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology explain that fire ants can link their bodies together, forming waterproof rafts that behave much like an active material capable of changing state from a solid to a liquid.
A high-angle helix helps microorganisms like sperm and bacteria swim through mucus and other viscoelastic fluids
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.
