Researchers at The University of New South Wales (UNSW) have created an “instruction manual” for developing metallic glass, an ultra-tough yet flexible alloy described as the most significant materials science innovation since plastic.
Aluminum nitride (AlN) powder filler plays an important role in producing next-generation, high-performance resins (e.g., those with high thermal conductivity of around 10 W/m-K, as well as electric insulation).
With the ongoing debates regarding climate change, global warming, carbon footprints and greenhouse gas generation, it’s difficult to come to any firm conclusion. Regardless of anyone’s opinion, we are being forced into making changes in our lives to reduce the use of fossil fuels and reduce CO2 generation.
Researchers have discovered a durable glass coating that can reportedly repel water and self-clean.

A moth’s eye and lotus leaf were the inspirations for an antireflective water-repelling (superhydrophobic) glass coating that holds significant potential for solar panels, lenses, detectors, windows, weapons systems and many other products.
