Visible-light catalysis in nanowires

A scientist has created visible-light catalysis, using silver chloride nanowires decorated with gold nanoparticles, that may decompose organic molecules in polluted water.

Versatility of copper nanowires

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.

Nanowires key to future transistors

A new generation of ultrasmall transistors and more powerful computer chips using semiconducting nanowires are closer to reality.

Transforming nanowires into nano-tools

A team of engineers has transformed simple nanowires into reconfigurable materials and circuits, demonstrating a novel, self-assembling method for chemically creating nanoscale structures.

Macroscopic quantum tunneling detected in nanowires

Counter to classical Newtonian mechanics, an entire collection of superconducting electrons in an ultrathin superconducting wire is able to tunnel as a pack.

Self-assembled nanowires

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.
