Despite great advances in computation, materials design is still science fiction. The construction of structure–property relations on the quantum scale will turn computational empiricism into true design.
Controlling metal oxidation is an age-old problem and the integrity of the metal–oxide interface is key to long-term material stability. A deeper investigation of this buried interface reveals the processes occurring at the atomic scale, and provides tantalizing clues for alloy design.
The extraordinarily high strength and stiffness of single-walled carbon nanotubes promises a myriad of unique applications, but many of these are reliant on the growth of ultralong, continuous nanotubes. A new synthetic procedure takes us a step closer to this goal.
Describing the structure of amorphous materials such as metallic glasses has been a longstanding problem in materials science. A new technique called fluctuation microscopy allows us to see order on length scales that are difficult to study with traditional scattering techniques.
Chemical immobilization of electro-active enzymes on conducting nanocrystalline-diamond thin films is laying the basis for diamond-based electrochemical biosensors and bio-interfaces.
Stethoscopes, loudspeakers, microphones, pressure gauges and many other common devices share a basic mechanism of operation — a pliable membrane deflecting under the influence of an external force. A nanocomposite membrane has now been developed that shows great sensitivity and autorecovery...
Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes in 1991 by Iijima
, there has been great interest in creating long, continuous nanotubes for applications where their properties coupled with extended lengths will enable new technology developments
. For example, ultralong nanotubes can be spun into...
