They will be useful in space, laser surgery, security systems. Researches of the Science Lab of Fiber Technology and Photonics at the Ural Federal University (UrFU) have developed and produced infrared optical…

Can scratches on car surfaces disappear when exposed to sunlight?

A new self-healing coating material. Fast, localized, and low-energy-consumption self-healing material… Expected applications: automotive coating materials. [ACS Appl. Polym. Mater.] Published as supplementary cover of the May 2022 issue. A…

A simple, cheap material for carbon capture, perhaps from tailpipes

Porous material from melamine efficiently captures CO2 from flue gases; could be scaled down. Using an inexpensive polymer called melamine — the main component of Formica — chemists have created…

3D print of the first high-performance nanostructured alloy

… that’s both ultrastrong and ductile. Components could have aerospace, medical, energy and automotive applications. A team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the Georgia Institute of…

A flexible device that harvests thermal energy to power wearable electronics

Wearable electronics, from health and fitness trackers to virtual reality headsets, are part of our everyday lives. But finding ways to continuously power these devices is a challenge. University of…
