The thing with the memory: shape memory alloy
No matter how much you bend and deform them, by increasing the temperature they can always "remember" their original shape. Whether for stents, surgical devices or microvalves, medical technology has also recognized the advantages of shape memory alloys.
Shape memory alloys – adaptable implants through thermodynamic coupling
We are guests at the company INGPULS in Bochum. There nickel-titanium shape memoryalloys are produced, which are used in medical products. In an interview with Dr. Burkhard Maaß we learn how an FGL works and where it is used.
Cracks in the desert floor appear random to the untrained eye, even beautifully so, but the mathematics governing patterns of dried clay turn out to be predictable - and useful in designing advanced materials.
A new interface developed by researchers in Bristol and Paris takes touch technology to the next level, by providing an artificial skin-like membrane for augmenting interactive devices such as phones, wearables or computers.
