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.
Piezoelectric force sensors based on polyvinylidene fluoride fibers can detect small forces and be integrated in textiles.
MIT researchers have come up with a new class of hydrophobic ceramics that can overcome the limitations of fragile polymer coatings.
Spanish researchers have mixed waste from the paper industry with ceramic material used in construction to make a brick that has low thermal conductivity.
University of Illinois researcher wins award for Best Ceramics PhD in the UK for work done at Imperial College London.
