Bacterial nanowires: Not what we thought they were
For the past 10 years, scientists have been fascinated by a type of "electric bacteria" that shoots out long tendrils like electric wires, using them to power themselves and transfer electricity to a variety ...
Shrinky Dinks close the gap for nanowires
(Phys.org) —How do you put a puzzle together when the pieces are too tiny to pick up? Shrink the distance between them.
New nanowire growth mechanism observed
(Phys.org) —A mechanism of growth of anisotropic metal oxides that was predicted 20 years ago has been observed for the first time by researchers at the University of Bristol. The work is described in an ...
