The structure harnesses a strange physical phenomenon and could enable engineers to manipulate light in new ways.
Structures and Materials
Making the structure of ‘fire ice’ with nanoparticles
Nanostructures get complex with electron equivalents
Nanoparticles of two different sizes break away from symmetrical designs.
Twisting magnetic fields for extreme plasma compression
When magnetic walls are closing in, wily plasma slips out between magnetic field lines. A Michigan-led team pioneered a way to keep more plasma contained.
‘Digital alchemy’ to reverse-engineer new materials
If you tell this computer program what crystal you need to build, it will design a particle that self-assembles into that crystal.
Electric field control of magnetism
The Van Vlack Lecture Series was established in honor of L. H. Van Vlack, to provide a distinguished lecture series from the outstanding leaders in the field of Materials Science and Engineering.
Bend it like Airbus
New $8.25M Airbus center at Michigan for high efficiency aircraft with flexible wings
