Nuclear—Out of this world

If humankind reaches Mars this century, an Oak Ridge National Laboratory-developed experiment testing advanced materials for spacecraft may play a key role.

Researchers design new material using artificial intelligence

Researchers at TU Delft have developed a new supercompressible but strong material without conducting any experimental tests at all, using only artificial intelligence (AI). "AI gives you a treasure map, and the scientist ...

New science on cracking leads to self-healing materials

Cracks in the desert floor appear random to the untrained eye, even beautifully so, but the mathematics governing patterns of dried clay turn out to be predictable—and useful in designing advanced materials.

A stretchable and flexible biofuel cell that runs on sweat

A unique new flexible and stretchable device, worn against the skin and capable of producing electrical energy by transforming the compounds present in sweat, was recently developed and patented by CNRS researchers from l"Université ...

Advanced Materials

Advanced Materials is a peer-reviewed materials science journal published every two weeks. It includes Communications, Reviews, and Feature Articles from the cutting edge of materials science, including topics in chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, ceramics, metallurgy, and biomaterials, and is one of the most heavily cited journals in this multidisciplinary field.

The journal was founded in 1988 as a supplement in the general chemistry journal Angewandte Chemie and remained in that journal for the first 18 months of its existence. The Founding Editor was Dr. Peter Goelitz (the Editor of Angewandte Chemie). Dr Peter Gregory was the Editor from 1991 until 2002 and he was succeeded by Dr. Esther Levy from 2002 to 2006. In 2007 Peter Gregory returned as Editor.

The editorial office is in Weinheim, near Heidelberg in Germany, from where the peer review process is coordinated by an editorial team made up of chemists, physicists, and engineers.

The 2007 ISI Impact Factor of Advanced Materials was 8.191.

Frequent topics covered by the journal also include liquid crystals, semiconductors, superconductors, optics, lasers, sensors, mesoporous materials, shape memory alloys, light-emitting materials, magnetic materials, thin films, and colloids.
