  • Researchers turn to liquid metals for agile electronics

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio –  Self-healing electronics, antennas that can change shape and function with the flick of a switch and clothing woven with conductive threads able to electrically connect devices may seem like science fiction fodder. But, for scientists at the Air Force Research Laboratory, these concepts are much closer to
  • AFRL researcher named optical society fellow

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- A prominent materials research engineer from the Air Force Research Laboratory was confirmed as Fellow of The Optical Society at the organization’s annual meeting in October. Dr. Shekhar Guha, a materials research engineer in the Photonic Materials Branch, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, AFRL, will
  • Embracing opportunity: additive technology for manufacturing

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – It’s a materials scientist’s dream, but as some experts say, an engineer’s nightmare. For scientists and engineers at the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, additive manufacturing, also known as 3-D printing, can be a powerful tool for rapid innovation.Ultimately, it’s a
  • AgilePod ‘reconfiguring’ ISR mission

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The ability to adapt a mission at a moment’s notice is a key tenet of the Air Force drive for flexibility in air power. For warfighters in the intelligence community, a new, Lego-like pod prototype expects to make that flexibility even easier on the field. Air Force Research Laboratory’s AgilePod is a
  • AFRL researchers improve production of thin, efficient solar cells

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Researchers in the Air Force Research Laboratory are making strides in material development that may open up new possibilities for thin, wearable electronics and other vital power applications. Photovoltaics, or solar cells, are a key component in next-generation power applications, but integrating them into
  • AFRL researcher achieves society honor

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- A prominent research scientist from the Air Force Research Laboratory will receive The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society Bruce Chalmers Award. The society’s award is named in honor of Bruce Chalmers, a professor of metallurgy and former master of John Winthrop House at Harvard University. This award
  • AFRL leader named ASM International Fellow

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- A senior research scientist at the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, was inducted as a 2016 ASM International Fellow at an awards ceremony in Salt Lake City, Utah, October 26. Dr. Roland Dutton, chief, Manufacturing and Industrial Technologies Division, was recognized as
  • Metals Affordability Initiative Hub enhances data exchange for researchers, teams

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Sifting through tons of data is a time-consuming, cumbersome process for focused research teams.  How does a person find what they really need?   The Air Force Research Laboratory is working to streamline that process for researchers across the spectrum. The Metals Affordability Initiative (MAI) is an
  • AFRL researcher brings science, history to chucking pumpkins

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- What do ancient Greek artillery, materials engineering and pumpkin chucking have in common? How about a senior Air Force Research Laboratory materials engineer who is inspiring future scientists—and having fun in the process. David Mollenhauer is a Senior Materials Engineer in the AFRL Materials and
  • Disrupting the research process: changing materials science with robotics, AI and autonomy

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --ARES may not look like Johnny Five, the famous robot from the 1986 movie scene, but this robot’s ability to integrate robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and data science is altering materials research in a big way at Air Force Research Laboratory.The AFRL Materials and Manufacturing Directorate’s
