Hard or soft? State-shifting new material can be both

Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have created a new material that can go from a soft gel to a hard solid and back again at the same temperature.

The switchability of the material - a combination of supercooled melted salt and polymers that the researchers call sal-gel - means it has two stable and reversible solid states for potential use in a range of technologies including soft robotics, adhesion and adhesives, and aeronautics.

Cheap, clean fuel cells could replace gasoline engines

Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have dramatically improved the durability of fuel cells, paving the way for the clean technology to replace gasoline engines in vehicles.

Making fuel cells last at least 10 times longer means they could be simplified and produced at a far lower cost. If mass-produced, that would make them economically practical to power cars and trucks.

WIN member combines new medical device technology with old medications to combat HIV

36.9 million people worldwide were living with HIV in 2017. In the same year, 1.8 million people became infected and 940,000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses. Despite the existence of antiretroviral therapy to treat HIV, the disease continues to exact a staggering cost on human life, so much so that combatting HIV and AIDS is one of the United Nations Sustainable Development goals for health.
