Making ceramics perfect—and perfectly bendable—with air

By April Gocha / September 16, 2014

Researchers from California Institute of Technology say that bendable ceramics are more than possible—they report the fabrication of alumina nanostructures that are 99.9% air and can bend and deform with the best of them, springing back to shape after compressions of over 50% strain.

Sunshields and semiconductors: ceramic and fabrics weaving new applications and markets

By / July 27, 2012

Many of the same materials used in semiconductor processing are being applied to textile materials. Credit: Jur, NCSU. The notion of ceramics going together with fabrics is a little counterintuitive. Mixing the hard stuff with soft threads? But, it’s true, and sort of like peanuts on top of an ice cream sundae—a great combination can…
