Engineers build a battery-free, wireless underwater camera

Scientists estimate that more than 95 percent of Earth's oceans have never been observed, which means we have seen less of our planet's ocean than we have the far side of the moon or the surface of Mars.

Eliminating low-frequency noise using a chiral metabeam

The soft whirring sound of low-frequency vibrations cannot be easily detected because it is not loud. But once detected, it can be hard to ignore. Often, residents complain of the annoyance caused by low-frequency vibrations ...

Thin-film technologies for the energy transition

Glass facades characterize modern architecture. While solar radiation serves to support heating in winter, the building interior heats up in summer and requires active cooling. Smart windows can regulate the solar radiation ...

Artificial soft surface autonomously mimics shapes of nature

Engineers at Duke University have developed a scalable soft surface that can continuously reshape itself to mimic objects in nature. Relying on electromagnetic actuation, mechanical modeling and machine learning to form new ...
