This discovery will mean the ability to form novel materials in a matter of seconds instead of days.
It could even change how glass breaks.
And it could transform the lives of people around the world.
This supermaterial just gained another power.
From long, illustrious careers to bright lights snuffed out too soon, we pay homage to noted scientists who passed away in 2016 and their visionary work.
This one can bend light!
The Second Industrial Revolution is at hand. Advanced new materials—such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, and transparent aluminum—promise to change the world with their near-miraculous properties. Here’s a roundup of the most important super materials of tomorrow.
Graphene has been hailed as a miracle material, capable of revolutionizing electric car batteries, robotic skin, and even water desalination. But what is it, and why hasn’t it changed the world yet?
