A catalytic flying carpet

Chemical engineering researchers develop self-powered microfluidic sheet that wraps, flaps and creeps

04-Jan-2019

The "magic carpet" featured in tales from "One Thousand and One Nights" to Disney's "Aladdin" captures the imagination not only because it can fly, but because it can also wave, flap, and alter its shape to serve its riders. With that inspiration, and the assistance of catalytic chemical ...

A transparent flexible material of silk and nanotubes

Nanotube interactions with silk fibroins - key to flexible, degradable electronics

02-Nov-2018

The silk fibers produced by Bombyx mori, the domestic silkworm, has been prized for millennia as a strong yet lightweight and luxurious material. Although synthetic polymers like nylon and polyester are less costly, they do not compare to silk's natural qualities and mechanical properties. And ...

Researchers developing sponge-like material to more efficiently store natural gas

25-Jan-2016

Although compressed natural gas represents a cleaner and more efficient fuel for vehicles, its volatile nature requires a reinforced, heavy tank that stores the gas at high pressure and therefore limits vehicle design. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering ...
