Video: Improving armor—developing better materials to better protect

By April Gocha / June 8, 2016

When it comes to ceramic materials, body armor is a familiar and favorite topic. But better materials for protecting the lives of those in the line of duty extend beyond ceramics, too.

Strong, lightweight, and ductile (yes, ductile) silica glass nanofibers

By Eileen De Guire / January 11, 2013

University of Southampton (UK) scientist, Gilberto Brambilla, developed the strongest, lightest known silica glass nanofibers. Credit: U. Southampton. It looks like a team of optoelectronics researchers from the University of Southampton in Britain may be getting into the structural composites business. According to the press release, the group discovered how to make “the strongest, lightest weight…

Europe Union launches aerogel insulation research and commercialization project

By / September 27, 2011

Credit: ARMINES/MINES ParisTech/CEP. A push like this in Europe was bound to happen sooner or later, and part of me thinks it would have been smart for the US, via the DOE, to put about $25 million of ARRA money (ah, the good old days) into something like this.  Yesterday, CORDIS, the European Community Research and…

Revolution in wound care? Inexpensive, easy-to-use cotton candy-like glass fibers appear to speed healing in initial venous stasis wound trial

By Yoko Co / May 3, 2011

May 3, 2011 (click for PDF version) WESTERVILLE, OH — Imagine a battlefield medic or emergency medical technician providing first aid with a special wad of cottony glass fibers that simultaneously slows bleeding, fights bacteria (and other sources of infection), stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, resists scarring, and-because it is quickly absorbed by surrounding…
