Giving Strength To Glass

Abstract:
A research team led by Joanna Aizenberg, a materials scientist at Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs in Murray Hill, N.J., finds that, at every level in its structural hierarchy, the glass sea sponge had evolved a way to overcome the brittleness of its building materials. "Nature has found a way to perfect inherently fragile materials by employing standard engineering principles from the nano- to the macroscale," Aizenberg says.
