Thinking small—Ceramic nanofiber sponges offer large-scale insulation, water purification possibilities

By Faye Oney / June 9, 2017

In a collaboration between Brown University and Tsinghua University in China, researchers have created small “sponges” out of ceramic nanofibers that are heat-resistant and highly deformable.

Penguins shed more materials secrets—feathers inform design of icephobic membranes

By April Gocha / February 26, 2016

Researchers at the Key Laboratory of Bio-Inspired Smart Interfacial Science and Technology at Beihang University (Beijing, China) say that in addition to being superhydrophobic, penguin feathers also owe their ice-shedding abilities to anti-adhesive qualities.

So much to read, so little time. Maybe try anyway: Scientists discover novel way to ‘heal’ defects in materials In a paper published in Nature Materials, a team of researchers report they have succeeded in creating a defect in the structure of a single-layer crystal by simply inserting an extra particle, and then watching as…

UAB group demonstrates techniques to electrospin improved 3D tissue engineering scaffolds

By Eileen De Guire / March 7, 2012

A lot of the basics of electrospinning have been figured out and it is relatively easy to use a desktop apparatus to spin mats of a particular material or even functionally graded materials, so a lot the recent emphasis on electrospinning has been devoted to scaling up these systems for mass production.
