Latest Nanowire Stories
Blinking numbers on a liquid-crystal display (LCD) often indicate that a device's clock needs resetting, but the blinking number on a small LCD signals the success of a five-year effort to power conventional electronic devices with nanoscale generators that harvest mechanical energy from the environment using an array of tiny nanowires.
FibeRio Announces Release of Cyclone L-1000: Enables Forcespinningâ„¢ Nanofibers FibeRio Technology Corporation â€“ The Force For Nanofibers - is announcing the launch of the first ever nanofiber production equipment utilizing Forcespinningâ„¢ Technology at the Filtration 2010 and Materials Research Society conferences in Philadelphia and Boston, respectively, from November 30 - December 2.
LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Oct.
Twisting spires, concentric rings, and gracefully bending petals are a few of the new three-dimensional shapes that University of Michigan engineers can make from carbon nanotubes using a new manufacturing process.
In cold weather, many children can't resist breathing onto a window and writing in the condensation.
Scientists at the University of Leeds have perfected a new technique that allows them to make molecular nanowires out of thin strips of ring-shaped molecules known as discotic liquid crystals (DLCs).
Some bacteria grow electrical hair that lets them link up in big biological circuits.
While refining their novel method for making nanoscale wires, chemists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) discovered an unexpected bonusâ€”a new way to create nanowires that produce light similar to that from light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
The second law of thermodynamics is a big hit with the beret-wearing college crowd because of its implicit existential crunch.
Silicon-based film may lead to efficient thermoelectric devices.
