Mar. 9, 2017 — By carefully combining multiple structures, metamaterials can exhibit properties that don't naturally exist. A research team has a new, simpler way of making them, using a concept dubbed ... read more

Mar. 7, 2017 — Researchers are using the Stampede supercomputer to design novel, fuel-efficient, wing designs for jets, and to develop tools that can help the industry build more efficient aircraft. The researchers ... read more

Mar. 3, 2017 — Researchers have developed a unique, 3-D manufacturing method that for the first time rapidly creates and precisely controls a material's architecture from the nanoscale to centimeters -- with ... read more

Synthetic Tooth Enamel May Lead to More Resilient Structures

Mar. 1, 2017 — Unavoidable vibrations, such as those on airplanes, cause rigid structures to age and crack, but researchers may have an answer for that -- design them more like tooth enamel, which could lead to ... read more

Colloidal Spheres Coaxed to Self-Assemble Into Photonic Crystals

Feb. 28, 2017 — It is difficult to make colloidal spheres self-assemble into photonic crystals, which are valued for their optical properties. A team of engineers and scientists report they have found a pathway ... read more

Feb. 27, 2017 — A new bioinspired process combines top-down and bottom-up assembly to turn silk protein into materials that are easily programmable at the nano-, micro- and macro-scales; ultralight; and robust. ... read more

Oil and Gas Wastewater Spills Alter Microbes in West Virginia Waters

Feb. 23, 2017 — Wastewater from oil and gas operations -- including fracking for shale gas -- at a West Virginia site altered microbes downstream, according to a new study. The study showed that wastewater releases, ... read more
