Scientists in Australia have said they are starting to develop techniques for 4D printing after having devised an autonomous valve. Just as we’ve become accustomed with the process of 3D printing and its uses, researchers at the ARC Centre for Electromaterials Science (ACES) have started to develop 3D printed materials … Continue reading “New Techniques To Advance ‘4D Printing’”
TNO and the Province of Limburg have opened a new international research and development center to further untap the potential of polymeric materials at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands. Partners will invest 45 million euros in the new center over a period of five years. Continue reading “Launch of the Brightlands Materials Center”
It’s rare when a scientific term is both cool sounding and precise, but the word “metamaterial” might just fit the bill. Although they are made from small, ordinary building blocks such as rods, circles or sticks, metamaterials have striking properties that often do not occur in the natural world.
