A scientist has created visible-light catalysis, using silver chloride nanowires decorated with gold nanoparticles, that may decompose organic molecules in polluted water.
A team of chemists has perfected a simple way to make tiny copper nanowires in quantity. The cheap conductors are small enough to be transparent, making them ideal for thin-film solar cells, flat-screen TVs and computers, and flexible displays.
A new generation of ultrasmall transistors and more powerful computer chips using semiconducting nanowires are closer to reality.
A team of engineers has transformed simple nanowires into reconfigurable materials and circuits, demonstrating a novel, self-assembling method for chemically creating nanoscale structures.
Counter to classical Newtonian mechanics, an entire collection of superconducting electrons in an ultrathin superconducting wire is able to tunnel as a pack.
Researchers have found a new way to make transistors smaller and faster. The technique uses self-assembled, self-aligned, and defect-free nanowire channels made of gallium arsenide.
