Rice University researchers find repeating patterns dictate optical properties of nanoparticle arrays New research at Rice University that seeks to establish points of reference between plasmonic particles and polymers might lead to smaller computer chips, better antennae and improvements in optical computing. Materials scientists take advantage of strong interactions between chemicals to form polymers that self-assemble into patterns and are the basis of things people use every day....

Custom Designed And Built Mesoscopic Structures Make For Faster, Cheaper Gas And Liquid Separation
2012-06-25 09:56:54

Building larger porous coordination polymer architectures In what may prove to be a significant boon for industry, separating mixtures of liquids or gasses has just become considerably easier. Using a new process they describe as "reverse fossilization," scientists at Kyoto University's WPI Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) have succeeded in creating custom designed porous substances capable of low cost, high efficiency separation. The process takes place in the...

Next Generation Antennas And Lenses Use Self-assembling Nanocubes
2012-06-13 20:14:18

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering have developed a technique that enables metallic nanocrystals to self-assemble into larger, complex materials for next-generation antennas and lenses. The metal nanocrystals are cube-shaped and, like bricks or Tetris blocks, spontaneously organize themselves into larger-scale structures with precise orientations relative to one another.  Their findings were published online June 10 in the journal Nature...
