Designing soft, self-assembling, nanoscale Lego

A team of researchers has shown that so-called block copolymer stars - that means polymers that consist of two different blocks and they are chemically anchored on a common point - have a robust and flexible architecture and they possess the ability to self-assemble at different levels.

A nanocoating that most liquids won't wet (w/video)

A nanoscale coating that's at least 95 percent air repels the broadest range of liquids of any material in its class, causing them to bounce off the treated surface, according to the University of Michigan engineering researchers who developed it.

Researchers confirm intrinsic superconductor behavior

When it comes to high-temperature superconductors, a class of materials called cuprates is king, and it is science's ongoing quest to determine their exact physical subtleties. Cornell physicists and materials scientists have now verified that cuprates respond differently when adding electrons versus removing them, resolving a central issue about the compounds' most fundamental properties.
