Clearly advancing: Multiple teams develop technologies to 3-D print high-quality, microstructured glass

By April Gocha / May 4, 2017

Two new papers, one published in Nature and one in Advanced Materials, describe 3-D printing techniques that use silica nanoparticle inks—rather than molten glass itself—to to fabricate optically clear glass components with micrometer-scale resolution, a huge leap forward for the integration of glass materials into additive manufacturing.

Video of the week: Apblett discusses ‘capsule’ for removing radioactive and heavy metal elements

By / May 31, 2012

Credit: ACS_Live. Given that in the last few days there have been high-profile stories about tuna being caught in the Pacific with trace (but, apparently, not unsafe) amounts of cesium from the Fukushima incident, I thought it might be timely to highlight some interesting work by an ACerS member regarding materials that could aid in…
