Nanoparticles of two different sizes break away from symmetrical designs.
Structures and Materials
Nanostructures get complex with electron equivalents
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
Most complex nanoparticle crystal ever made by design
Extraordinary nanoparticle crystals are possible by harnessing particle shape in addition to using DNA as smart glue.
