When Functional Materials Become Squishy
Terahertz spectroscopy reveals the underlying microscopic dynamics for an all-optical control of functional materials.
Droplets Race to the Finish
Anisotropic wetting can be achieved with a very simple system: a flat, soft, stretched substrate.
Smart Shear-thickening Materials
In-situ tailoring of contact forces via thermo-responsive polymer brushes enables the realization of suspensions where shear thickening can be switched on and off on demand.
