Call for Papers: Early Career Scholars in Materials Science 2020

Journal of Materials Research (JMR) publishes an Annual Issue that is devoted to early career scholars in Materials Science. The Issue invites full length research and review articles by materials researchers, who have completed their Ph.D but not yet achieved full professorship, or senior scientist, at the time of submission.  It also provides a unique opportunity to be highlighted and promoted early in one’s research career and in order to increase attention to these papers, the issue is fully open access.


Laser-fabricated crystals in glass are ferroelectric, could power next-generation communication systems

A team of researchers from Lehigh University, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Lebanon Valley College and Corning Inc. has demonstrated, for the first time, that crystals manufactured by lasers within a glass matrix maintain full ferroelectric functionality.


Meet the editors! A Q&A with the series editors of Cambridge Elements in Flexible and Large-Area Electronics: Professor Luigi Occhipinti and Professor Ravinder Dahiya.

1. What do you think is distinctive about Cambridge Elements in Flexible and Large-Area Electronics? A distinctive feature of our Cambridge Elements series is that it allows both experts, as well as newcomers in the field to have access to exhaustive, self-contained and up-to-date information about topics that are highly relevant to the growing field of flexible and large-area electronics. Each Element is written by highly-reputed authors and world-leading scientists.…

Making city infrastructure more resilient

The systems that help us heat and cool our homes, provide drinking water, take away our garbage, let us communicate instantly with one another and enable travel — collectively known as infrastructure — will need to be designed differently in the future to become more sustainable and resilient.


Ulcers from diabetes? New shoe insole could provide healing on-the-go

Diabetes can lead to ulcers that patients don’t even feel or notice until the sight of blood. And because ulcers can’t heal on their own, 14 to 24 percent of diabetics in the U.S. who experience them end up losing their toes, foot or leg. Purdue University researchers have developed a shoe insole that could help make the healing process more portable for the 15 percent of Americans who develop ulcers as a result of diabetes.
