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.
