X-Rays Reveal ‘Handedness’ in Swirling Electric Vortices


Scientists used spiraling X-rays at Berkeley Lab to observe, for the first time, a property that gives left- or right-handedness to swirling electric patterns – dubbed polar vortices – in a layered material called a superlattice.

American Concrete Institute Announces New Webinar on Engineering Ethics

The “Engineering Ethics” webinar will review various codes of ethics and their applications, along with a review of some case studies and lessons learned.



3-D Printed Microfibers Could Provide Structure for Artificially Grown Body Part


Much as a frame provides structural support for a house and the chassis provides strength and shape for a car, a team of Penn State engineers believe they have a way to create the structural framework for growing living tissue using an off-the-shelf 3-D printer.

Researchers Program Biomaterials with 'Logic Gates' That Release Therapeutics in Response to Environmental Triggers


Scientists at the University of Washington announced that they have built and tested a new biomaterial-based delivery system — known as a hydrogel — that will encase a desired cargo and dissolve to release its freight only when specific physiological conditions are met.

Aerobrick: A Brick with a World Record


Better thermal insulation means lower heating costs - but this should not be at the expense of exciting architecture. A new type of brick filled with aerogel could make thin and highly insulating walls possible in the future - without any additional insulation layer.

Two Argonne Scientists Recognized for a Decade of Breakthroughs


Two scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have been named to the Web of Science’s Highly Cited List of 2017, ranking in the top 1 percent of their peers by citations and subject area. Materials Scientist Khalil Amine and Energy and Environmental Policy Scientist David Streets say they are thrilled to see their work — and the laboratory — recognized in such a way.
