More efficient refining method using iridium crucible saves 40% energy in glass production.
Scientists produce a paper-like ceramic material which is as hard as copper, yet flexible enough to be rolled up or folded. The material has another advantage: it is electrically conductive.
Partnership seeks to solve the electricity situation in India and other developing countries with micro power plants installed in every house.
Berkeley Lab researchers develop real-time CT-scan test rig for ceramic composites at ultrahigh temperatures.
Scientists engineer a chemically stable and atomically sharp lanthanum aluminate monolayer between LaAlO3 and strontium titanate heterostructures.
Glass ceramics are of great interest for the development of optical elements with meter-scale dimensions for high power laser facilities.
New work shows that the flexural deflection of ceramics can be increased by a factor of ten using segmented, interlocked structures.
Scientists from Italy and the USA present an innovative processing method for the fabrication of 3D scaffolds for bone tissue engineering using either fused deposition or conventional hot extrusion.
Corning claims new Gorilla Glass 2 enables a 20% reduction in device thickness while maintaining exceptional scratch resistance.
Owens Corning research scientist Manoj Choudhary talks to MaterialsViews about his recent review on the mathematical modeling of glass behavior.
