A Painless Adhesive

Harvard School of Engineering & Applied Sciences

Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Xi’an Jiaotong University in China have developed a new type of adhesive that can strongly adhere wet materials — such as hydrogel and living tissue — and be easily detached with a specific frequency of light.

Timken turns to neutrons to get its bearings on internal stresses

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Researchers from the Timken Company, a leading international manufacturer of bearings, are using neutron scattering at ORNL’s High Flux Isotope Reactor to investigate how internal residual stresses can shorten the lifetime and reliability of a bearing. By mapping the stresses in these bearings, the researchers can develop computational models to learn how to reduce the amount of stress in future bearings.
