Stitching it all together: Inspiration for 'tough' and 'self-healing' materials

The future of materials science covers a smorgasbord of applications: batteries that self-repair, wind turbines robust enough to withstand the extreme forces put on them, or long-lasting devices that only require replacing small parts every so often. Before getting to these applications, these basic science questions need to be answered. These questions are one reason the Department of Energy (DOE) supports research in this area at universities and national laboratories around the country.

Stitching it all together: Inspiration for 'tough' and 'self-healing' materials

Imagine you're an astronaut on a spacewalk. You're doing your job when suddenly you get an alert: Your suit is leaking oxygen. Somewhere there's a hole in your suit, a hole so tiny you can't ...
