Innovative lightweight metal foam set to protect astronauts

Lightweight composite metal foams are effective at blocking X-rays, gamma rays and neutron radiation, say researchers from North Carolina State University who believe their discovery holds promise for use in nuclear safety and space exploration. “This work means there’s an opportunity to use composite metal foam to develop safer systems for transporting nuclear waste, more […]

New imaging device is flexible, flat, transparent, and disposable

An Austrian research team has developed an entirely new way of capturing images based on a flat, flexible, transparent, and potentially disposable polymer sheet. Resembling a flexible plastic film, the imager uses fluorescent particles to capture incoming light and channel a portion of it to an array of sensors around the edge of the sheet. […]
