Nanorods Propelled Ultrasonically Spin at a Dizzying Rate

Nanorods Propelled Ultrasonically Spin at a Dizzying Rate

Vibrate a solution of rod-shaped metal nanoparticles in water with ultrasound and they'll spin around their long axes like tiny drill bits. Why? No one yet knows exactly. But researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have clocked their speed—and it's fast. At up to 150,000 revolutions per minute, these nanomotors rotate 10 times faster than any nanoscale object submerged in liquid ever reported. [More]
New Solution-Based Mineral Substitution Process for Making a Precursor to Transparent Thin Films

New Solution-Based Mineral Substitution Process for Making a Precursor to Transparent Thin Films

The yield so far is small, but chemists at the University of Oregon have developed a low-energy, solution-based mineral substitution process to make a precursor to transparent thin films that could find use in electronics and alternative energy devices. [More]
