New approach to soft material flow may yield way to new materials, disaster prediction

24/08/2020

How does toothpaste stay in its tube and not ooze out when we remove the cap? What causes seemingly solid ground to suddenly break free into a landslide? Defining exactly how soft materials flow and seize has eluded researchers for years, but a new study explains this complex motion using relatively simple experiments.

Surface deep: Light-responsive top layer of plastic film induces movement

21/08/2020

Scientists show that only a thin, topmost layer of the light-dependent azobenzene-containing plastic film needs to be light-sensitive, rather than the entire film, opening up new ways to potentially reduce production costs and revolutionize its use.

Aerogel - the micro structural material of the future

20/08/2020

Aerogel is an excellent thermal insulator. So far, however, it has mainly been used on a large scale, for example in environmental technology, in physical experiments or in industrial catalysis. Empa researchers have now succeeded in making aerogels accessible to microelectronics and precision engineering.

No more playing with fire: Study offers insight into 'safer' rechargeable batteries

19/08/2020

Scientists at Okayama University use a technique called 'operando nuclear magnetic resonance' to track the precise mechanism of dendrite formation. They also extend their experiments to sodium-ion batteries, making their practical application easier
