Microscale knots double tensile strength of new material

August 1st, 2023

Knots are known for boosting the tensile strength of materials, including the tiniest twists of DNA. The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena reports that engineers there have developed a new material consisting of microscale knots and shown that it’s far tougher than a version of the material without knots. The material is made of […]
