Researchers sharply reduce time needed for glass and ceramic 3D printing

The fabrication of complex ceramic or glass structures via stereolithography, a type of 3D printing, has long been held back by how much time it takes at the back-end of the process, which can take up to two days. A new technique reduces th...

Supercooled Water Is a Stable Liquid, Scientists Show for the First Time

First-ever measurements provide evidence that extremely cold liquid water exists in two distinct structures that co-exist and vary in proportion dependent on temperature. Supercooled water is really two liquids in one. That’s the conclusi...

Scientists grow carbon nanotube 'forest' much longer than any other

While scientists have been able to grow individual CNTs approximately 50 cm in length, when they attempt arrays, or forests, they hit a ceiling at around 2 cm. This is because the catalyst, which is key to CNT growth occurring, deactivates...

Dynamical Behaviors of Helium-Methane Compounds in Icy Giant Planets

The inner mantles of icy giant planets such as Uranus and Neptune are mainly composed by water, ammonia and methane, while their atmospheres are made of hydrogen and helium. Under high pressures inside giant planets, it is unclear whether th...

New Technique to Create Novel Alkaline Hydrogel that Better Heals Wounds

For wound care to be effective, it is essential to maintain conditions that are ideal for the regeneration of skin and tissue. Although hydrogels offer most of these conditions, they cannot maintain an alkaline environment. Image Credit: To...
