Coverage doesn't always mean funds

Abstract:
n the fall of 2007, University researchers led by Chemical engineering Prof. Nicholas Kotov developed Plasteel - a transparent, lightweight plastic-like material with a toughness that experts say is ideal for military armor. The discovery made Wired magazine's "Top 10 Scientific Breakthroughs of 2007."

Ellen Arruda, professor of mechanical engineering and a member of the team that developed the material, said the project's inclusion in Wired will increase the University's prominence in the field of nanotechnology.
