A new study answers a key question at the very heart of nanotechnology: Why are nanorods so small?
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a new technique for growing slimmer copper nanorods, a key step for advancing integrated 3-D chip technology.
U.S. chemists say they've discovered a technology that permits them to produce ultra-pure gold nanorods that are about 99 percent pure.
By Larry Rulison, Albany Times Union, N.Y. Jul. 4--TROY -- An associate professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has figured out a way to make a pot of water boil more quickly. Nikhil Koratkar and a team of researchers at RPI lined a pot with tiny copper nanorods.
Nanomaterials are increasingly gaining the attention of not only the scientific community, but also the public due to their unique properties which endear them to new and exciting applications. These special properties can vary markedly from those of the analogous bulk materials.
Researchers at Purdue University have taken a step toward developing a new type of ultra-sensitive medical imaging technique that works by shining a laser through the skin to detect tiny gold nanorods injected into the bloodstream.
Nanorods of many materials are proving very successful, and their properties often exceed that of nanotubes, making them excellent candidates for industrial applications. Theoretical calculations predicted that diamond nanorods too would have properties superior to that of carbon nanotubes. But, so far, nobody had been able to actually synthesize diamond nanorods. This is no longer true.
