A team of researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology and two other institutions has developed a new 3-D printing method to create objects that can permanently transform into a range of different shapes in response to heat.
Researchers at Georgia Tech described how a class of water soluble liquid crystals, called lyotropic chromonic liquid crystals, exhibited unexpected characteristics that could be harnessed for use in sensors and other potential applications.
Four projects set to move forward at the Georgia Institute of Technology aim to lay the groundwork for manufacturing next-generation flexible electronics, which have the potential to make an impact on industries ranging from health care to defense.
An old adage holds that the flap of a butterfly’s wing in Brazil can trigger a tornado in Texas weeks later. From the butterfly’s wing to the tornado, turbulence seems unpredictable, but scientists are changing that by predicting future behavior of actual turbulent fluid flows.
What if your medical diagnosis and treatment could be further informed by the experience of millions of other patients, including those who not only had similar symptoms, but perhaps also were your age, gender, ethnicity — and with similar medical history?
