Latest Nanowire Stories
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.
The University of Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) is pioneering research into developing the strongest silica nanofibres in the world.
Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed an elegant and powerful new microscale actuator that can flex like a tiny beckoning finger.
If nanoscience were television, we'd be in the 1950s.
