Brook Swanson, an associate professor of biology at Gonzaga, and her team studied the peacock mantis shrimp at the nanoscopic level to determine the durability of its hammer-like legs. Their research could help engineers develop lighter, tougher materials for objects designed to endure repetitive, intense impacts. These findings, published in the journal Science, could be especially transformative for the military and medical fields.
