Latest Nanowire Stories
When a team of University of Illinois engineers set out to grow nanowires of a compound semiconductor on top of a sheet of graphene, they did not expect to discover a new paradigm of epitaxy.
University of Cincinnati research describes discovery of a new structure that is a fundamental game changer in the physics of semiconductor nanowires.
Nanowires could be the answer for constructing solar panels with less materials and lower costs.
Research from the University of Pennsylvania has enabled "bulk" silicon to emit broad-spectrum, visible light for the first time, opening the possibility of using the element in devices that have both electronic and photonic components.
Extremely tiny nanowires are expected to revolutionize the field of electronics, and a new study in the journal Nature Photonics shows that they could have an impact on solar energy production as well.
Slender bacterial nanowires require certain key amino acids in order to conduct electricity.
Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory and other labs have demonstrated a process whereby quantum dots can self-assemble at optimal locations in nanowires, a breakthrough that could improve solar cells, quantum computing, and lighting devices.
Researchers at USC have developed a new lithium-ion battery design that uses porous silicon nanoparticles in place of the traditional graphite anodes to provide superior performance.
Swedish researchers are claiming to be the first to show it is possible to use nanowires to manufacture solar cells.
