Thermal spray fabricates nature-inspired ceramic composites that mimic nacre

By April Gocha / July 6, 2015

Researchers from Stony Brook University have recently reported the ability to use thermal-sprayed ceramic deposits as templates for synthesis of ceramic–polymer composites with striking microstructural similarity and mechanical behavior similar to those observed in nacre.

Pill-shaped precipitates

By / February 13, 2009

Everyone who has paid their dues in a chem lab is familiar with processes that precipitate materials shaped as spheres, cubes, rods and needles. It’s also not unusual to see rhombohedra, whiskers, tubes, flowers and rosette particles of inorganic/organic materials in the micron-scale. But, how about a pill-shaped particle? You know – round, with slightly…
