Sticky materials may already hold our lives together, but a new breakthrough in our understanding of how things stick together could transform our understanding of some biological processes like organ growth and cancer metastasis.
Groundbreaking Navigation Technology for Visually Impaired: Yale engineer’s collaboration with theater company yields innovative device
Despite its small size and simple appearance, Animotus is simultaneously a feat of engineering, a work of art, and a potentially transformative community service project. Adam Spiers, a postdoctoral researcher in Yale University’s department of mechanical engineering, has developed a
Scientists learn lessons from nature’s greenery, modeling the next generation of solar technology on plant cells.
A team of Yale researchers has demonstrated how a seemingly random insect mating swarm responds to external stimulus through intelligent group fluctuations.
A study led by André Taylor, associate professor of chemical and environmental engineering at Yale, presents a new method of creating transparent lithium-ion batteries. The development brings science closer than ever before to the realization of invisible electronics.
Science fiction novels, TV shows, and movies have time and time again toyed with the cloning of ancient animals. But just how close are we to bringing those species, and our childhood fantasies, back to life?
A research team at the University of Exeter has developed a new way to produce graphene that could allow for the creation of electronic skin.
Throw a potpourri of transistors into the bathtub, add some soap, and out comes a fully formed nanocomputer. Science fiction? Maybe not. Nanoscientists dream of coaxing electronic components to self-assemble into complex systems. In fact, researchers at the University of Copenhagen have taken a major step towards making self-assembling electronics a reality.
What if rain gear was scientifically incapable of getting wet, and was actually able to repel water? Researchers at Northwestern University are exploring this question as they work to develop a material that stays dry underwater.
A new material developed by researchers at the University of Michigan repairs itself of bullet holes within seconds. This invention has substantial implications for the future of aerospace engineering and space travel.
