Authors discuss a series of intermetallic-strengthened Al alloys that exhibit the potential for new high-volume use of cerium.
graphene material
// Journal Covers
Demonstrating a facile electrochemical method that can substantially improve the capacitance of graphene‐based electrodes while still retaining their excellent rate capability.
3D printing direct ink write
// Journal Covers
Reports the fabrication of 3D periodic graphene composite aerogel microlattices for supercapacitor applications, via a 3D printing technique known as direct-ink writing.
Lab on a CHip journal cover
// Journal Covers
Livermore and Harvard Medical School researchers report a novel cardiac platform that can record cardiac tissue adhesion, electrophysiology, and contractility on the same chip.
Nanoscratching of optical glass
// Journal Covers
The nanomechanical deformations on glass surfaces near the elastic–plastic load boundary have been measured on various glasses by nanoscratching using an atomic force microscope (AFM) to mimic the mechanical interactions of polishing particles during optical polishing.
Instrument being installed in telescope
// Journal Covers
Observations of stars were performed with the “TEDI” interferometer mounted within the central hole of the 200-in. primary mirror in series with the comounted TripleSpec near-infrared echelle spectrograph.
Artist conception of chemical processes
// Journal Covers
Via a unique two-step solvent-directed sol-gel process, researchers have synthesized and directly compared the electrochemical performance of several representative graphene/metal oxide (GMO) nanocomposites.
Artist conception metal 3D printing
// Journal Covers
Researchers demonstrate that 3D printing can be used to tailor the dynamic behavior of materials, so long as the feature sizes are made commensurate with the length scale of the governing phenomena.
Nanoporous gold
// Journal Covers
Research team outlines an approach to efficient catalyst design through modeling and experiment for nanoporous gold (npAu).
Radiation hazard symbol
// Journal Covers
Provides a general overview of nuclear forensics, selecting examples of key “nuclear forensic signatures,” which have allowed investigators to determine the identity of unknown nuclear material in real investigations.
