Gouldstone Featured in Advanced Materials

April 22, 2015

Andrew Gouldstone's research was featured in Advanced Materials for "Bioinspired Hybrid Materials from Spray-Formed Ceramic Templates"

Abstract from Advanced Materials:

Thermally sprayed ceramics, when infiltrated with polymer, exhibit synergistic increases in strength and toughness. The structure of such composites — a dense, brick–mortar arrangement — is strikingly similar to that of nacre, as are the mechanisms underlying the robust mechanical behavior. This industrial-scale process thus presents an exciting tool for bio­mimetic exploration.
