Carbon nanotubes are hollow cylindrical cables of carbon molecules with properties that are useful for nanotechnology, electronics, optics and other fields of materials science.
Biomaterials are any matter, surface, or construct derived either from nature or synthesized which can interact naturally with biological material.
A molecular assember is a machine that can build materials by creating precise atomic-level chemical reactions.
Nanowires are structures subject to quantum effects that have a thickness or diameter of less than tens of nanometers and an unconstrained length.
Programmable matter has the ability to change its pshape, density, moduli, conductivity and optical properties based on input or autonomous sensing.
Metamaterials are artificial materials engineered to have properties that may not be found in nature.
An optical invisibility cloak is a fabric constructed to make the wearer invisible by bending light around the subject.
Self-healing materials are smart materials that have the inherent ability to repair any damage caused by usage over time.
Graphene is a material made of a 1-atom thick, pure carbon sheet which is light, transparent, strong and extremely electrically conductive.
Personal fabricators are consumer-grade manufacturing devices for the physical creation and assembly of virtual models into end-user products.
