Stronger and lighter material than steel in production

Materials that are both strong and light are used in many areas, from automobiles to wearable technology, helping to advance the field in which they are used.

Stronger and lighter material than steel in production

Researchers at the University of Connecticut (UConn) have created a surprisingly strong yet lightweight material. And they did it in an interesting way: Using DNA and a kind of glass!

While the team first created a self-assembling DNA structure, nanomaterials scientists Oleg Gang and Aaron Mickelson achieved this successful result by coating the DNA with a very thin layer of glass-derived material, just a few hundred atoms thick. UConn materials scientist Seok-Woo Lee, one of the authors of the study published in Cell Reports, points out that the structure they created is the strongest material known for such lightness.
