You can read more about it here, courtesy of Yahoo! Apparently, the researches used the shape of the Eiffel Tower as an inspiration for the design of this remarkable metal, since this structure is both stable and strong. Therefore, they succeeded in creating something that is not only lightweight, but highly practical (previous very light man-made materials were unpalatable due to their instability – hence the utilization of the Eiffel Tower shape.
In experiments, these metal lattices proved very springy, bouncing back to their original shape even after being compressed to less than half their size.
“We’re envisioning applications in structural components, such as in aerospace,” Schaedler said. “Its energy-absorption capabilities might also make it useful for acoustic-, vibration- and shock-damping. We can control the architecture on the millimeter, micrometer and nanometer scales, to design materials with tailored properties for specific applications, if we want.”
The researchers are now experimenting…
