Nanomushroom (Image 1)

Nanomushroom (Image 1) This "nanomushroom" happened to grow among a field of nanowires. Researchers grow many types of nanostructures, some for their intrinsic properties, and others as tools. The Electron Transfer group at New Mexico State University grows their nanowires to help probe the electron transfer properties of organic molecules. The mushroom may not be quite what they were looking for, but it is a great example of the range of shapes nanostructures can come in.
