Owing to polymer science, ubiquitous requirements of everyday life like rubber tires, plastic water bottles, Kevlar and Teflon, nylon jackets among many others have been possible.
Stratasys Ltd., a leader in polymer 3D printing solutions, announced today it has acquired all remaining shares of Xaar 3D Ltd. from Xaar plc, accelerating the company’s growth in production-scale 3D printing. Stratasys previously owned a 45% stake in Xaar 3D.
Lithium-ion batteries are common but can pose safety problems. Solid-state batteries are smaller, safer and store more energy. Scientists at Argonne are accelerating a new generation of better batteries.
PNNL has developed seaweed-based inks and materials for 2-D and 3-D printing that can be used for a multitude of applications in the art, medical, STEM, and other fields.
The goal of tackling global warming by turning carbon dioxide into fuel could be one step closer with researchers using a supercomputer to identify a group of "single-atom" catalysts that could play a key role.
A device with dual capability — generating fuel and oxidant from water and converting fuel and oxygen into electricity — with a single switch operation, has an array of advantages for space, terrestrial and military applications.
Powder processing lies at the heart of pharmaceutical manufacture. It is therefore necessary that efforts to improve efficiency and preserve quality must focus on understanding and controlling powder behaviour.
Lab-based dynamic-CT is new and a huge step forward in the world of computed tomography.
In polymetallic complexes, two or more metal atoms combine with organic molecules into larger, complicated molecular structures.
Silicon is a staple of the digital revolution, shunting loads of signals on a device that's likely just inches from your eyes at this very moment.
The move to electric vehicles calls for a wide range of improvements in energy and power density, as well as more reliable and cost-effective lithium batteries.
The Biden administration has made reducing CO2 emissions a policy priority. Although debate continues over how much to reduce and how quickly, it seems unavoidable that the power sector will face growing pressure to deeply reduce its CO2 emissions.
Scientists from the Institute of High-Temperature Electrochemistry of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Ural Federal University have for the first time experimentally determined the optimal thickness of the aluminum layer between the lithium anode and the solid electrolyte.
According to certain estimates, one-third of the world’s population does not have access to clean drinking water and half of the population could end up living in water-stressed conditions by 2025.
A Cornell University-led collaboration has developed a critical component for a technology that enables inflatable braille that changes shape under the user’s touch, realizing an iPad or Kindle-like tool for the blind.
