Determination of bond strengths in non-woven fabrics: A combined experimental and computational approach

Non-woven materials have fiber network structures and present some good physical properties, like high porosity, high mechanical strength and high toughness.

New technique simplifies creation of nanoparticle 'magic-sized clusters'

One of the cool things about nanoparticles is also what makes them so difficult to work with: the fact that their properties are dependent on their size.

X-ray detector for studying characteristics of materials

Modern synchrotron x-ray sources, such as the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron (CHESS), produce x-ray beams with unprecedented capabilities.

Hetero-structure nanoparticles
Pressure-induced fabrication of Janus nanoparticles and helically decorating nanorods

Using pressure rather than chemicals, a joint research team of Brown and Cornell Universities combined their strengths and reshaped nanoparticles into highly monodispersive Janus nanoparticles and helically decorating nanorods.
