Bioinspired Process Makes Materials That Are Light, Robust and Programmable

Researchers at Tufts University”s School of Engineering have developed a new bioinspired technique that transforms silk protein into complex materials that are easily programmable at the nano-, micro- and macro-scales as well as ultralight and robust. Among the varied structures generated was a web of silk nano fibers able to withstand a load 4,000 times
