Materials Science: Engineers make adaptable, lightweight materials with 4D printing

Envision smart materials that can transform from being firm as wood to as delicate as a wipe – and furthermore change shape. Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have made adaptable, lightweight materials with 4D printing that could prompt better shock absorption, morphing airplane or drone wings, soft robotics and tiny implantable biomedical gadgets. Their exploration is…

Scientists in Japan to Discover and Develop Superconducting Materials

A research group in Japan has applied materials informatics (MI) approaches to find new superconducting materials. Their findings are revealed in the journal Applied Physics express. Superconducting materials that make possible long-distance electricity transmission, without energy loss because of the absence of resistivity, are key to resolution environmental and energy problems. Conventionally, researchers attempting to…
