February 2016 (Volume 16, Issue 3)

Feb 2, 2016, 14:08 PM
The first February issue of the Materials 360 Newsletter features recent research on a way to interlace long organic molecules like threads without chemically linking them, which could lead to new kinds of resilient materials; a discovery on how occlusion unfolds, giving seashells their strength; and a technique to help shape-memory polymers change from temporarily fixed shapes into permanent, highly complex shapes that can be redefined again and again without using any mold. Also included is a science policy feature on energy savings through smart manufacturing, discussion about a material that may be harder than diamond, and a feature on the fictitious devices in the TV series Star Trek that materials research has now made commonplace.
