Latest Nanowire Stories
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researchers use supercomputer to study effects of stacking graphene nanoribbons.
Tiny wires could help engineers realize high-performance solar cells and other electronics, according to University of Illinois researchers.
Researchers are developing a new type of computer memory that could be faster than the existing commercial memory and use far less power than flash memory devices.
Researchers have developed cardiac patches using gold nanowires, which could create parts of tissue whose cells beat in time, mimicking the way the natural heart muscle works.
Nanowires of copper could eliminate busted cell phone screens and make solar cells more competitive with fossil fuels.
It's been long known that asbestos spells trouble for human cells. Scientists have seen cells stabbed with spiky, long asbestos fibers, and the image is gory: Part of the fiber is protruding from the cell, like a quivering arrow that's found its mark.
Berkeley Lab researchers develop inexpensive technique for making high quality nanowire solar cells.
Thin gold wires often used in high-end electronic applications are wonderfully flexible as well as conductive.
The discovery of a fundamental, previously unknown property of microbial nanowires in the bacterium Geobacter sulfurreducens that allows electron transport across long distances could revolutionize nanotechnology and bioelectronics.
