New synthesis method yields degradable polymers

Materials could be useful for delivering drugs or imaging agents in the body; may offer alternative to some industrial plastics. MIT chemists have devised a...

Study opens route to ultra-low-power microchips

A new approach to controlling magnetism in a microchip could open the doors to memory, computing, and sensing devices that consume drastically less power...

A new approach to liquid-repelling surfaces

“Omniphobic” might sound like a way to describe someone who is afraid of everything, but it actually refers to a special type of surface...

A transistor that performs as both topological insulator and superconductor

MIT researchers have demonstrated that a tungsten ditelluride-based transistor combines two different electronic states of matter. A transistor based on the 2-D material tungsten ditelluride...

A new technology era in 3-D printing

Mechanical engineering researchers are inventing game-changing technologies and developing a Renaissance in 3-D printing. In the mid-15th century, a new technology that would change the...

Researchers harvest 2-D materials, bringing them closer to commercialization

Since the 2003 discovery of the single-atom-thick carbon material known as graphene, there has been significant interest in other types of 2-D materials as...

Flexible electronics made from exotic materials – MIT

Cost-effective method produces semiconducting films from materials that outperform silicon. The vast majority of computing devices today are made from silicon, the second most abundant...

New polymer films conduct heat instead of trapping it

Polymers are usually the go-to material for thermal insulation. Think of a silicone oven mitt, or a Styrofoam coffee cup, both manufactured from polymer...

Greener, more efficient natural gas filtration

Novel membrane material removes more impurities, without the need for toxic solvents. Natural gas and biogas have become increasingly popular sources of energy throughout the...

MIT and NASA engineers demonstrate a new kind of airplane wing

Assembled from tiny identical pieces, the wing could enable lighter, more energy-efficient aircraft designs. A team of engineers has built and tested a radically new...
