Giant Anisotropic Charge Density Oscillations Can Enhance Integration of Nanoelectronic Components

Giant Anisotropic Charge Density Oscillations Can Enhance Integration of Nanoelectronic Components

In metals such as copper or aluminium, so-called conduction electrons are able to move around freely, in the same way as particles in a gas or a liquid. If, however, impurities are implanted into the metal’s crystal lattice, the electrons cluster together in a uniform pattern around the point of interference, resembling the ripples that occur when a stone is thrown into a pool of water.

Fabrication of Nanoporous Metals Through Cost-Effective Technique

Fabrication of Nanoporous Metals Through Cost-Effective Technique

Researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have presented a new technique on inexpensively and efficiently fabricating nanoporous metals at varying scales, from nanoscale to macroscale. Nanoporous metals are foam-like substances consisting of air vacuum to a certain extent and a large surface area for efficient transfer of electrons. These metals facilitate more number of sites for analyte adsorption. [More]

Circularly Polarized Light Enables Chiral Templating of Self-Assembling Nanostructures

Circularly Polarized Light Enables Chiral Templating of Self-Assembling Nanostructures

As hands come in left and right versions that are mirror images of each other, so do the amino acids and sugars within us. But unlike hands, only the left-oriented amino acids and the right-oriented sugars ever make into life as we know it. [More]
Silver Nanowire Ink Printed on Paper to Create Flexible Electronic Sensors

Silver Nanowire Ink Printed on Paper to Create Flexible Electronic Sensors

Flexible electronic sensors based on paper -- an inexpensive material -- have the potential to some day cut the price of a wide range of medical tools, from helpful robots to diagnostic tests. Scientists have now developed a fast, low-cost way of making these sensors by directly printing conductive ink on paper. They published their advance in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. [More]
