Learning from pangolins and peacocks: Researchers explore next-gen structural materials

Nov. 29, 2022

In a new review paper, a team of international researchers, including Hendrik Heinz, professor of chemical and biological engineering, have laid out how engineers are taking inspiration from the biological world—and designing new kinds of materials that are potentially tougher, more versatile and more sustainable than what humans can make on their own. Such nature-inspired materials could, one day, lead to new and better solar panels, soft robots and even coatings for hypersonic jets.
