Engineers develop 'chameleon metals' that change surfaces in response to heat

15-Jan-2020

Just like a chameleon changes its skin color in response to its environment, engineers have found a way for liquid metal - and potentially solid metal - to change its surface structure in response to heat. Treating particles of liquid metal alloys with heat causes them to roughen their surfaces ...

Researchers create nanoscale sensors to better see how high pressure affects materials

08-Jan-2020

Researchers have developed new nanoscale technology to image and measure more of the stresses and strains on materials under high pressures. As the researchers reported in the journal Science, that matters because, "Pressure alters the physical, chemical and electronic properties of ...

Terahertz flashes uncover state of matter hidden by superconductivity

06-Jun-2018

Using the physics equivalent of the strobe photography that captures every twitch of a cheetah in full sprint, researchers have used ultrafast spectroscopy to visualize electrons interacting as a hidden state of matter in a superconductive alloy. It takes intense, single-cycle pulses of photons - ...

3-D paper-based microbial fuel cell operating under continuous flow condition

05-Jul-2016

A team of researchers from the Iowa State University in Ames, IA has demonstrated a proof-of-concept three-dimensional paper-based microbial fuel cell (MFC) that could take advantage of capillary action to guide the liquids through the MFC system and to eliminate the need for external power. The ...

Engineers develop micro-sized, liquid-metal particles for heat-free soldering

27-Apr-2016

Martin Thuo likes to look for new, affordable and clean ways to put science and technology to work in the world. His lab is dedicated to an idea called frugal innovation: "How do you do very high-level science or engineering with very little?" said Thuo, an assistant professor of materials ...

Engineers develop flexible skin that traps radar waves, cloaks objects

08-Mar-2016

Iowa State University engineers have developed a new flexible, stretchable and tunable "meta-skin" that uses rows of small, liquid-metal devices to cloak an object from the sharp eyes of radar. The meta-skin takes its name from metamaterials, which are composites that have properties not found in ...

Researchers double down on heat to break up cellulose, produce fuels and power

24-Oct-2012

Nicholas Creager recently pointed to the nuts and bolts of one of Iowa State University's latest biofuel machines. The 6-inch diameter, stainless steel pipe is the pressure vessel, which is essential for the system's operation, said Creager, a doctoral student in mechanical engineering and ...
