Synthetic Mother-of-Pearl May Join the Developing Rundown of Advanced Materials

A composite material with comparable microstructure to natural mother-of-pearl has been created by scientists at Switzerland’s ETH Zurich research institute. A group of scientists at ETH (Zurich, Switzerland) have been attempting to create engineered mother-of-pearl. Otherwise called nacre, mother-of-pearl is one the hardest, stiffest, most stable materials found in nature. ETH scientists from the Group…
