An international team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has announced that they have succeeded in measuring the tensile strength of centimetre-scale monolayer graphene for the first time, using camphor as a naturally-volatilizing suppor... Read More
A team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has introduced a novel manufacturing technology to form new materials, using ultrasonic waves used in medical diagnosis, humidifiers, as well as sonar systems for submarines. The method has recei... Read More
Recent work by Professor Bartosz Grzybowski has been published in the November issue of Advanced Materials.
New method to create dynamic tubular structures, inspired by leaves around a stem, scales on pine cone, and viruses’ tails.
Some of nature’s most exquisite patterns; leaves around a plant’s stem, scales on a pine cone, and the tail of some viruses, consist of small objects decorating a cylindrical chassis with a specific pattern. Nature’s preferred method of bui... Read More
