Brittle Starfish Shows How to Make Tough Ceramics

A coral reef-dwelling starfish that creates highly resistant lenses from chalk has given an international team of researchers a biostrategy that could lead to new ways for toughening brittle ceramics in applications including optical lenses, automotive turbochargers and biomaterial implants.

Scientists Craft World’s Tiniest Interlinking Chains

Version_Three1copy.jpg

For decades, scientists have been trying to make a true molecular chain: a repeated set of tiny rings interlocked together. In a study in Science published online Nov. 30, University of Chicago researchers announced the first confirmed method to craft such a molecular chain.

Microwaved Exploding Eggs Make for an Unusual Acoustic Experiment

ASA-fall-2017-Nash-egg.jpg

If you have looked closely at a microwave’s warnings or have experienced an accidental explosion, you know that certain foods pose a risk due to an increase in their internal pressure, and potatoes and hard-boiled eggs are among the most common culprits. Researchers from Charles M. Salter Associates will present their research on the sound pressures generated by exploding eggs at the 174th ASA Meeting, Dec. 4-8, 2017, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Nanomaterials: How to Separate Linear and Ring-Shaped Molecules

LisaWeiss-Portraitphoto.jpg

What is the difference between linear chains and rings composed of the same material? The molecular building blocks are identical, but from a mathematical point of view the two structures have distinct topologies, namely ring and linear chain. This difference is readily recognizable on a macroscopic scale, as for example a golden ring and a gold bar, but represents a tricky task on the microscopic scale. The physicists Lisa Weiss and Christos Likos of the University of Vienna and Arash Nikoubashman of the Johannes-Gutenberg University of Mainz investigated strategies to separate nano- and microparticles of distinct topology. Their results are published in the high-impact journal ACS Macro Letters.
