The adoption of combinatorial and computational methods in biomaterials design is a highway towards the discovery and realization of tailored polymeric materials to satisfy the specific requirements of many diverse biomedical or prosthetic applications.
The temperature dependence of the viscosity of most glass-forming liquids is known to depart significantly from the classical Arrhenius behaviour of simple fluids. The discovery of an unexpected correlation between the extent of this departure and the Poisson ratio of the resulting glass could...
Superconductivity and ferromagnetism are two very useful phenomena, but rarely coexist in bulk materials. Bringing them together in artificial hybrid structures produces some unusual results.
Light-absorbing materials can exhibit exceptional photothermal effects as their characteristic dimensions approach the nanoscale. A flash welding technique that exploits the peculiar photothermal response of polyaniline nanofibres opens new avenues for processing and patterning polymer-based...
A glass transition in amorphous silicon has been surmised but never clearly shown experimentally. The very fast timescale of ion hammering experiments allows observation of the long-sought low-density liquid polyamorph of silicon.
Nature Materials 3, 663–664 (2004). In this News and Views piece, a problem in the printing process created faults within Fig. 2, which should have appeared as shown below.
Quasicrystals are solids that exhibit symmetries long thought forbidden in nature. Since their discovery in a rapidly solidified Al–Mn alloy in 1984, the central issue in the field has been to understand why they form. Are they energetically stable compounds or stabilized by entropy? In recent...
