April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from North Carolina State University has created flower-like structures out of germanium sulfide (GeS), which is a semiconductor material. The GeS flowers have extremely thin petals, 20-30 nanometers thick, with an enormous surface area. These flowers hold promise for next-generation energy storage devices and solar cells. “Creating these GeS nanoflowers is exciting because it gives us a huge surface area in...
