Researchers watch molecules from smart materials wiggle in real-time
Materials Characterisation and Testing : 08 October, 2014
A new crystallographic technique called time-resolved crystallography is being used at the University of Leeds to transform scientists’ ability to observe how molecules work. The method allows reaearchers to observe changes within the structure of molecules. Although fast time-resolved crystallography (Laue crystallography) has previously been possible, it has required advanced instrumentation that is only available at three sites worldwide. Only a handful of proteins have been studied using the traditional technique.

Magnetostrictive materials optimised by multi-physics simulation
Finite Element Analysis : 14 May, 2014
Materials that demonstrate different responses to varying external stimuli are known as "smart materials,’ and their discovery has led to the creation of products that perform on a whole new level. These engineered materials are developed to perform smarter and more efficiently than their predecessors, allowing materials to be designed based on the products and environments in which they will be used. Using Comsol, Etrema researchers were able to find a design that was optimised for the competing requirements of both the AC and DC magnetics.
