This local company, based at the University City Science Center, is developing bio-sensors and more from graphene, a groundbreaking new material.

Solar material repeatedly bursts from the sun in this close-up captured on July 9-10, 2016, by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO.

Baker's lifelong work in "protein folding" is leading to novel proteins such as one that could stop the flu

You might learn something about your company and comply with regulation. Stakeholders will appreciate it, too.

Soft materials are great at damping energy — that’s why rubber tires are so good at absorbing the shock of bumps and potholes. But if researchers are going to build autonomous soft systems, like soft robots, they’ll need a way to transmit energy through soft materials. Now, researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), in collaboration with colleagues at…

Whether in the business of jamming granular materials into a solid (manufacturing pills, for instance) or keeping materials from solidifying (as in wastewater treatment), it's crucial to understand th

Khanjan Mehta is a man with a mission -- solving the problems that make it so difficult to provide energy, clean drinking water, food security, and health care to some of the poorest nations on Earth. As the founding director of HESE -- Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship -- in the College of Engineering, Mehta leads a group of engaged undergraduates who are designing new technologies…

Haydn Wadley’s research helps create materials that are more resistant to extreme duress, such as jet-engine heat, explosions and projectiles – saving lives and protecting the environment.

On America Recycles Day, we’re taking a look back over the last 40 years since the passage of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and how we’ve worked to protect the health of our country’s communities through resource conservation. Here at EPA, recycling is a key element of Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) , a systemic approach to using and reusing materials more…

Craig Arnold, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, became director of the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) Jan. 1. The institute recently installed cutting-edge imaging equipment, including a microscope that is capable of imaging individual atoms and is one of only four of its kind in the world. In the control room of a new scanning electron microscope, Arnold recently answered questions about materials science and engineering at Princeton.

By Elena Colon-Marrero and Allison Hughes On October 14, 2014, Princeton University announced it had acquired the papers of author, emeritus faculty member, and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison. The pa…

Princeton University has canceled the rest of the men's swimming and diving team's season over materials on the team's email list.

New research shows the chemistry of concrete systems can be improved to provide better performance, while reducing its carbon footprint

Journeying to the center of the Earth, a la Jules Verne, won’t be happening anytime soon. A new material made from a liquid metal and magnetic particles, however, could make it much easier for researchers to recreate the powerful forces at the planet’s core.
