Tiny Magnetic Particles Enable New Material to Bend, Twist, and Grab

Georgia Institute of Technology

A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and The Ohio State University has developed a soft polymer material, called magnetic shape memory polymer, that uses magnetic fields to transform into a variety of shapes. The material could enable a range of new applications from antennas that change frequencies on the fly to gripper arms for delicate or heavy objects.

El Nino Swings More Violently in the Industrial Age, Compelling Evidence Says

Georgia Institute of Technology

Enough physical evidence spanning millennia has now come together to allow researchers to say definitively that: El Ninos, La Ninas, and the climate phenomenon that drives them have become more extreme in the times of human-induced climate change.

Newswise: A King of Hearts

A King of Hearts

Georgia Institute of Technology

When Mick Jagger received an artificial heart valve via catheter, he made the transcatheter replacement valve famous. Iconic "Dr. Y" made it possible. Ajit Yoganathan's lab has tested every valve on the market for quality, and his analyses shaped the industry and its designs, including of the valve in Jagger's chest.

3D-Printed Device Finds ‘Needle in a Haystack’ Cancer Cells by Removing the Hay

Georgia Institute of Technology

Finding a handful of cancer cells hiding among billions of blood cells in a patient sample can be like finding a needle in a haystack. In a new approach enabled by 3D-printed cell traps, researchers are removing the hay to expose the cancer cells.

Reframing Antarctica’s Meltwater Pond Dangers to Ice Shelves and Sea Level

Georgia Institute of Technology

Meltwater ponds riddle a kilometer-thick ice shelf, which then shatters in just weeks, shocking scientists and speeding the flow of the glacier behind it into the ocean to drive up sea level. A new study puts damage by meltwater ponds to ice shelves and sea level into cool, mathematical perspective.
