As hard as a diamond and as deformable as metal

Scientists develop new material for tomorrow's technology

15-Jan-2021

Smartphones with large glass housings and displays are impressive, but they are also very prone to get cracked and scratched. To prevent these kinds of damages, a material combining the hardness of diamond and the deformability of metals would be ideal – and is indeed considered the holy grail of ...

Liquid crystals form nano rings

Quantised self-assembly enables design of materials with novel properties

07-Feb-2018

At DESY's X-ray source PETRA III, scientists have investigated an intriguing form of self-assembly in liquid crystals: When the liquid crystals are filled into cylindrical nanopores and heated, their molecules form ordered rings as they cool – a condition that otherwise does not naturally occur ...

World Record: Scientists from Northern Germany Produce the Lightest Material in the World

19-Jul-2012

A network of porous carbon tubes that is three-dimensionally interwoven at nano and micro level – this is the lightest material in the world. It weights only 0.2 milligrams per cubic centimetre, and is therefore 75 times lighter than Styrofoam, but it is very strong nevertheless. Scientists of ...

Hard or soft: at the touch of a button New nano material switches properties as required

08-Jun-2011

A world premiere: a material which changes its strength, virtually at the touch of a button. This transformation can be achieved in a matter of seconds through changes in the electron structure of a material; thus hard and brittle matter, for example, can become soft and malleable. What makes ...
