Dec. 22, 2017 – So you drop your smartphone flat on its back. What’s the worst that could happen? These days, maybe a dent.
A smartphone’s metal body is made of a crystalline material with a highly ordered arrangement of atoms. Such materials have a clear order to disrupt — with potential weak points defined by “defects” in that order — making it relatively easy to predict which atoms would change places or become rearranged to form the aforementioned dent.
The same phone’s glass screen is a different story. Made of atoms that are jammed together in no discernible order, the glass side of your device could shatter when dropped. Like many other disordered solids, glass cannot be deformed significantly before failing, and because these materials lack crystalline order, predicting which atoms will shift during a failure is difficult.

This $1.1M energy efficiency project is the company’s first with an educational institution. It will reduce Barrack Academy’s energy use by more than 25%, translating into approximately 13,000 tons of CO₂—the equivalent of taking 2,500 cars off the road over the life of the project.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 2, 2017 – Metrus Energy, a pioneer in energy efficiency financing, has announced an Efficiency Services Agreement (ESA) project with Jack Barrack Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, the company’s first deal with an educational institution.
The $1.1 million efficiency-as-a-service project will be installed later this summer at the Academy’s multi-building campus and will include HVAC upgrades, building automation, hot water controls and interior lighting retrofits. The project will reduce the Academy’s energy use by more than 25%. This translates into approximately 13,000 tons of CO₂—the equivalent of taking 2,500 cars off the road over the life of the project.
