Scratching more than the surface of auto coatings

Improved tests go "deeper"

24-Sep-2018

Know that sickening feeling when you exit the grocery store and find your car has been banged up by a runaway shopping cart? It may one day be just a bad memory if auto body manufacturers make use of a new suite of tests developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and ...

Illinois engineers protect artifacts by graphene gilding

14-Sep-2018

Gilding is the process of coating intricate artifacts with precious metals. Ancient Egyptians and Chinese coated their sculptures with thin metal films using gilding--and these golden sculptures have resisted corrosion, wear, and environmental degradation for thousands of years. The middle and ...

The most wear-resistant metal alloy in the world

17-Aug-2018

If you're ever unlucky enough to have a car with metal tires, you might consider a set made from a new alloy engineered at Sandia National Laboratories. You could skid -- not drive, skid -- around the Earth's equator 500 times before wearing out the tread. Sandia's materials science team has ...

Continuously emitting microlasers with nanoparticle-coated beads

20-Jun-2018

Researchers have found a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells. These microlasers, which convert infrared light into light at higher frequencies, are among the smallest continuously emitting lasers of their kind ever reported and can ...

Does nanoconfinement affect the interaction between two materials placed in contact?

12-Jun-2018

Scientists show that is it possible to estimate how nanoconfinement affects the number of contacts formed by two materials placed in intimate contact and, hence, the interfacial interactions. They considered wafers of silicon, as those largely used in microelectronics, coated by thin polymer ...
