Atomic Structure of Ultrasound Material Not What Anyone Expected

“Lead magnesium niobate (PMN) is a prototypical “relaxor” material, used in a wide variety of applications, from ultrasound to sonar. Researchers have now used state-of-the-art microscopy techniques to see exactly how atoms are arranged in PMN – and it’s not what anyone expected. “This work gives us information we can use to better understand how and why PMN behaves the …

Clinging on to the memory

“Immune cells hold their memory of how to respond to allergens in a surprising way. Understanding how the immune system remembers allergy-causing antigens could help prevent severe reactions. When a predisposed person is initially exposed to an allergy-causing antigen, specific antibodies, called immunoglobulin E (IgE), are produced without leading to an allergic reaction. But if exposed to the allergen a …

Great potential as soft robotic material of the future

“Scientists at Waseda University may have come a step closer to innovating soft robots to care for people. Its material, however, is something you may have never expected. They have developed robotic crystals that walk slowly like an inchworm and roll 20,000 times faster than its walking speed. These autonomously moving, organic crystals have great potential as material for …
