Induced flaws in metamaterials can produce useful textures and behavior

While a piece of paper is usually flat and floppy, the same piece of paper crumpled into a wad is stiff and round. This demonstrates that scrunching changes the texture and behavior of precisely the same material -- paper. A new Tel Aviv Un...

Scientists learn more about the first hours of a lithium-ion battery's life

The first hours of a lithium-ion battery's life largely determine just how well it will perform. In those moments, a set of molecules self-assembles into a structure inside the battery that will affect the battery for years to come. This co...
