UCLA Team Develops Ultrathin Films for Stretchable and Sturdy Bioelectronic Membranes

The layered patchwork design of van der Waals thin films enables the membrane to stretch and flex over irregular geometries. (Yan et al./UCLA)   The highly adaptable materials could lead to new...

3D Printed Carbon Tube-in-Tube Structures Garnered the Cover of Nature Materials

A group of materials scientists, chemists, and modelers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, University of Groningen (Netherland), and UCLA (Prof. Morris Wang) have created a new class of ultralight and stiff carbon tube-in-tube structures via a 3D printing technique called direct laser writing – two photon polymerization (DLW-TPP).
