Skin-inspired coating that’s as hard as teeth and can heal itself

Self-healing smart coatings could someday make scratches on cell phones a thing of the past. But researchers often have to compromise between strength and the ability to self-repair when developing these materials. Now, one group reports in ACS Nano the development of a smart coating that is as hard as tooth enamel on the outside but can heal itself like skin can.

Engineers 3-D print shape-shifting smart gel

3D printing becomes 4D as objects morph over time and temperatures change. Rutgers engineers have invented a “4D printing” method for a smart gel that could lead to the development of “living” structures in human organs and tissues, soft robots and targeted drug delivery.

The world’s smallest sensor feels the growth power of plants, animals or humans

How do you visualize extremely small forces that are related to processes in the body, such as growth or developments within an embryo? Wageningen researchers combined laser technology with chemical knowledge, experimented and came up with a sensor consisting of a single molecule, which measures hundreds of times more accurately than the existing instruments for measuring the minus forces at the molecular level.
