Advanced composites may borrow designs from deep-sea shrimp

14 julio 2015

New research is revealing details about how the exoskeleton of a certain type of deep-sea shrimp allows the animal to survive scalding hot waters in hydrothermal vents thousands of feet under water. Insights into the complex molecular behavior of the materials could have implications for the design of new synthetic armor capable of withstanding environmental extremes.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
