Economics is often called the dismal science, but to many outsiders materials research is still the dirty science. Robert Cahn explains why materials scientists should be proud of their history.
Conventional superconductors, such as niobium, may soon have competition from a recent upstart. A new technique for growing thin films of MgB2 removes one serious hurdle in the path to commercialization.
Lenses used in electron microscopy have aberrations that limit their resolution. Successful correction of spherical aberration is now possible, opening the door to three-dimensional, sub-ångström imaging of atomic arrangements.
As Benjamin Braddock was told in the film The Graduate “plastics” are big business. But with a limited palette of polymers to choose from, the industry has long sought to combine desirable properties from several polymers into new blends.
Atomic-scale engineering turns silicon into a material in which electronics and photonics can be merged, thus leading to microphotonic integrated circuits.
For a quarter of a century, barcodes have been used in the macroscopic world to tag goods in supermarkets. Can the same idea be used to track molecules in microbiology?
Looking through a window on a rainy day may generate feelings other than melancholy. Curiosity, for example: isn't it remarkable that water droplets stick to the pane rather than sliding down?
How does plastic deformation of polycrystalline materials with grain sizes less than 100 nm look at the atomic scale? A large-scale molecular dynamics simulation of nanocrystalline aluminium reveals some surprising behaviour.
