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...
