Latest Nanowire Stories
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.
Flexible, transparent electronics are closer to reality with the creation of graphene-based electrodes at Rice University.
The world at large runs on lithium ion batteries.
Taking advantage of the unique properties of zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have demonstrated a new type of piezoelectric resistive switching device in which the write-read access of memory cells is controlled by electromechanical modulation.
Scientists are reporting a key advance toward the long-awaited era of "single-molecule electronics," when common electronic circuits in computers, smart phones, audio players, and other devices may shrink to the size of a grain of sand.
A team led by a professor at the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering has made a discovery in semiconductor nanowire laser technology that could potentially do everything from kill viruses to increase storage capacity of DVDs.
- A morbid dread of being buried alive. Also spelled 'taphiphobia'.
