Ultralight material
Ultralight materials are solids with a density of less than 10 mg/cm, including silica aerogels, carbon nanotube aerogels, aerographite, metallic foams, polymeric foams, and metallic microlattice...
Boeing: Lightest. Metal. Ever.
Microlattice is the lightest metallic structure ever made. At 99.99% air, it's light enough to balance on top of a dandelion, while its structure makes it st...
Video : How to Make an Aluminium Metal Foam
Demonstration on how to make an aluminium metal foam. Metal foams can be used as heat exchangers.
New diamond aerogel is so light that it's like "frozen smoke" made of diamonds
Researchers have figured out a way to make diamond aerogel. The aerogel is only 40 times as dense as air. Someday, it may coat the windows, the TV, and the inside of a person's body.
Graphene aerogel is seven times lighter than air, can balance on a blade of grass
Chinese material scientists have created the world's lightest material: A graphene aerogel that is seven times lighter than air, and 12% lighter than the previous record holder (aerographite). A cubic...

Aerogel
Aerogel is a synthetic porous ultralight material derived from a gel, in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with a gas. The result is a solid with extremely low density and low th...
Aerographite
Aerographite is a synthetic foam consisting of a porous interconnected network of tubular carbon. With a density of 180 g/m (.00112 lbs/ft) it is one of the lightest structural materials ever cre...
Metal foam
A metal foam is a cellular structure consisting of a solid metal, frequently aluminium, as well as a large volume fraction of gas-filled pores. The pores can be sealed (closed-cell foam), or they can...
Polymeric foam
A polymeric foam is a foam, in liquid or solidified form, formed from polymers.Examples include:
Metallic microlattice
A metallic microlattice is a synthetic porous metallic material, consisting of an ultra-light metal foam. With a density as low as 0.9 kg/m (0.00561 lb/ft), it is one of the lightest structural m...
Chalcogel
A chalcogel or properly metal chalcogenide aerogel is an aerogel made from chalcogens (the column of elements on the periodic table beginning with oxygen) such as sulfur and selenium, with cadmium, te...
SEAgel
SEAgel (Safe Emulsion Agar gel) is one of a class of high-tech foam materials known as aerogels. It is an excellent thermal insulator and among the least dense solids known. SEAgel was invented by Rob...
Osseointegration
Osseointegration derives from the Greek osteon, bone, and the Latin integrare, to make whole. The term refers to the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of ...
