This section offers news briefs related to research on emerging technology. The University of Illinois has developed a turntable microoptics based on shape-memory polymers by forming four different imprinted features. A collaborative research between University of Wisconsin, Florida State University and the University of Michigan artificially engineered a multilayer material that could lead to breakthroughs in superconductivity.
