Rare Earth Magnet Recycling Is a Grind. This New Process Takes a Simpler Approach

Ames Laboratory

A new recycling process developed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Critical Materials Institute (CMI) turns discarded hard disk drive (HDD) magnets into new magnet material in a few steps, and tackles both the economic and environmental issues typically associated with mining e-waste for valuable materials.

This 2-D Nanosheet Expands Like a Grow Monster

University at Buffalo

Engineers discovered that tiny crystal lattices called “self-assembling molecular nanosheets” expand when exposed to light. The advancement could form the backbone of new light-powered actuators, oscillators and other microscopic electronic components useful in the development of artificial muscles and other soft robotic systems.

Performing under Pressure: Modeling Oxidation in High-Stress Materials

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Each year, the effects of corroding materials sap more than $1 trillion from the global economy. As certain alloys are exposed to extreme stress and temperatures, an oxide film begins to form, causing the alloys to break down even more quickly. What precisely makes these conditions so conducive for corrosion, however, remains poorly understood, especially in microelectromechanical devices. Chinese researchers have started to chip away at why these materials corrode under mechanical stress; they describe their work in the Journal of Applied Physics.

Johns Hopkins Students Devise One-Size-Fits-All Blood-Clotting Tool

Johns Hopkins University

Students develop a blood-clotting “super gel” that can be injected through a catheter but is hyper-absorbent enough to then swell with blood, blocking further bleeding.
