  Penn and KIST Researchers Offer Insights Into Lightweight Material That Expands With Heat
  Penn researchers, in collaboration with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology recently found a way to exploit these properties of bubbles to create "microbombs," a type of material that expands with heat to form "microclusters," which fit themselves to fill their physical confinement. The research was co-led by postdoc Hyesung Cho, who was advised by Shu Yang, Professor in Materials Science and Engineering.
