In the 1940s, scientists first explained how Materials can deform plastically by atomic-scale line defects called dislocations. These defects can be understood as tiny carpet folds that can move one part of a material relative to the other without spending a lot of energy. Many technical application...

High-resolution X-ray tomography reveals how butterflies form their iridescent wing scales. It has only been one year since the material scientists around Prof. Erdmann Spiecker from the Center for Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM) at the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg had been granted funding f...
