Synthetic materials that behave like mollusk shells

February 2nd, 2011
Researchers report the identification of specific characteristics of the material microstructure of nacre, the iridescent material lining many mollusk shells, that enable its outstanding performance. By performing detailed fracture experiments within an atomic force microscope, the group was able to directly visualize and quantify the way the tablets slid relative to each other as the material is deformed.
