Bioinspired protein creates stretchable 2D layered materials

 Nanotechnology News
 25 July 2022
Nature creates layered materials like bone and mother-of-pearl that become less sensitive to defects as they grow. Now researchers have created, using biomimetic proteins patterned on squid ring teeth, composite layered 2D materials that are resistant to breaking and extremely stretchable....

The structure of the smallest semiconductor elucidated

 Nanotechnology News
 25 July 2022
A semiconductor is a material whose conductivity lies somewhere between that of a conductor and an insulator. This property allows semiconductors to serve as the base material for modern electronics and transistors. It is no understatement that the technological progress in the latter part of the...

Understanding friction, the unavoidable enemy

 Nanotechnology News
 25 July 2022
For machines with mechanical elements, friction is an unavoidable enemy. It is a major source of service failure and can reduce the lifespan of any machinery, from bicycles and cars to airplanes and assembly lines....
