Surprise Discovery Shows 'Artificial Atoms' Rapidly Self-Assembling Into Complex Structures https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/ar... “Really, we've been in the midst of a metamaterials revolution for about the past decade—with atomically thin graphene at the heart of much of said revolution—and it likely hasn't even peaked. Consider a new paper out Monday in Nature describing the rapid crystallization of superlattice nanostructures from engineered ‘artificial atoms.’”
Graphene: Everything You Need to Know About the ‘Miracle Material’ https://www.seeker.com/tech/materials... “Graphene, the thinnest and strongest material on Earth, is just one atom thick yet 150 times stronger than the same weight of steel. A square meter of graphene is 1,000 times lighter than a piece of paper and more flexible than rubber.”
'Meta-Skin' Truly Cloaks Objects From Radar https://www.seeker.com/meta-skin-trul... “A team at Iowa State University led by electrical and computer engineering professor Jiming Song and associate professor Liang Dong developed a metamaterial they're calling "meta-skin." Metamaterials are manmade materials that have capabilities greater than the sum of their individual components.”
