Light-Powered 3-D Printer Prints Stent

The 3-D printer in Cheng Sun’s lab allows researchers to fabricate materials that precisely fit their designs. It uses a photo-polymer in liquid form that coverts into a solid when light is applied. The material actually forms to the shape of the projected light, creating a 3-D structure.

    New lithium-rich battery could last much longer

    On paper, it doesn't seem like Christopher Wolverton's super lithium-rich battery should work. For one, the novel battery uses iron, an inexpensive metal that has notoriously failed in batteries. And in another difficult feat, the battery leverages oxygen to help drive the chemical reaction ... more

    Scientists capture colliding organic nanoparticles on video for first time

    A Northwestern University research team is the first to capture on video organic nanoparticles colliding and fusing together. This unprecedented view of "chemistry in motion" will aid Northwestern nanoscientists developing new drug delivery methods as well as demonstrate to researchers arou ... more

    Understanding rare earth emulsions

    Despite their name, rare earth elements actually aren't that rare. Abundant in mines around the world, rare earths are used in many high-tech products, including visual displays, batteries, super conductors, and computer hard drives. But while they aren't necessarily tricky to find, the ele ... more
