New Particle Manipulation Technique for 3D Printing Applications

New Particle Manipulation Technique for 3D Printing Applications

New York University scientists have discovered that the low-temperature microscopic particles tend to melt with the rise in temperature to moderate levels and again recombine under high temperature. This invention paves the way for the development of smart materials capable of adapting to any new environment, and for providing detailed study of 3D printing technology. [More]
Scientists Create New Hydrogen Mixture that Exhibits Different Molecular Interactions

Scientists Create New Hydrogen Mixture that Exhibits Different Molecular Interactions

Scientists have combined hydrogen (H2) and deuterium (D2) to produce a new “Phase IV” material in which molecular interaction was found to be different than previously observed. This is the first time Anderson localization from vibrational energy has been noticed during interaction with different masses in a material. [More]
Nanolobe Production Technique Holds Promise for 3D-Printed Pharmaceutical Concepts

Nanolobe Production Technique Holds Promise for 3D-Printed Pharmaceutical Concepts

Researchers from the University of Michigan have created nanolobes, which are rounded crystalline structures without any facets. The design resembles starfish shell texture, which is almost impossible to create in the laboratory. The shape of the nanolobes as well as the technique by which they are made have potential applications such as a light guide in advanced LEDs, non-reflective surfaces and solar cells. [More]
