UCI scientists partner with Under Armour to create squidlike fabric for self-regulating thermal comfort
With a $2.8 million grant, UCI assistant professor of chemical engineering & materials science Alon Gorodetsky and colleagues are working with Under Armour to create a fabric based on the adaptive principles of squid skin that will enable wearers to regulate their own temperature.
Protein called reflectin could be used to improve performance of biomedical devices
The common pencil squid (Loliginidae) may hold the key to a new generation of medical technologies that could communicate more directly with the human body. UC Irvine materials science researchers have discovered that reflectin, a protein in the tentacled creature’s skin, can conduct positive electrical charges, or protons, making it a promising material for building biologically inspired devices.
In the spirit of Halloween, we offer a witches’ brew of peculiar probes and freaky findings by UCI researchers
What can the U.S. military learn from a common squid? A lot about how to hide from enemies, according to researchers at UC Irvine’s Henry Samueli School of Engineering.
