Stimuli-responsive, self-folding, two-dimensional (2-D) layered materials have interesting functions for flexible electronics, wearables, biosensors, and photonics applications. However, limits with scalability and a lack of design tools can prevent high integration and...


While glass is a truly ubiquitous material that we use on a daily basis, it also represents a major scientific conundrum. Contrary to what one might expect, the true nature of glass remains something of a mystery, with scientific inquiry into its chemical and physical properties...
