For all its superb optical properties, fused silica glass is too brittle to withstand the computer-controlled machining processes used in today’s industries. Now, researchers at a German university have developed a nanocomposite material of mixed glass and polymer particles that can be shaped with polymer-molding techniques, then heat-treated to change into optical-grade glass (Adv. Mater., doi:10.1002/adma.201707100). […]

Under the cover of darkness, a well-known brittle semiconductor turns out to be surprisingly flexible. Scientists at a Japanese university have investigated the previously unknown ability of zinc sulfide crystals to resist deformation under irradiation by light and to bend when the light goes out  (Science, doi:10.1126/science.aar6035). Illumination experiments Inorganic semiconductors play an important role in […]
