Making telescopes that curve and twist

Making telescopes that curve and twist
Posted: Jul 11, 2017 (Nanowerk News) A new tool for computational design allows users to turn any 3D shape into a collapsible telescoping structure. New mathematical methods developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University capture the complex and diverse properties of such structures, which are valuable for a variety of applications in 3D fabrication and robotics--particularly where mechanisms must be compact in size and easily deployable. The re…

Nature-inspired material uses liquid reinforcement

Nature-inspired material uses liquid reinforcement
Materials scientists at Rice University are looking to nature -- at the discs in human spines and the skin in ocean-diving fish, for example -- for clues about designing materials with seemingly contradictory properties -- flexibility and stiffness. In research appearing online in the journal Advanced Materials Interfaces, graduate student Peter Owuor, research scientist Chandra Sekhar Tiwary and colleagues from the laboratories of Rice Professor Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou found they could incr…

How do you build a metal nanoparticle?

How do you build a metal nanoparticle?
Although scientists have for decades been able to synthesize nanoparticles in the lab, the process is mostly trial and error, and how the formation actually takes place is obscure. However, a study recently published in Nature Communications by chemical engineers at the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering explains how metal nanoparticles form. "Thermodynamic Stability of Ligand-Protected Metal Nanoclusters" (DOI: 10.1038/ncomms15988) was co-authored by Giannis Mpourmpakis, a…
