Nanoplatelet Surface Coating Applied Using a Spray Gun Spontaneously Self-Assembles into Nano-Walls

Nanoplatelet Surface Coating Applied Using a Spray Gun Spontaneously Self-Assembles into Nano-Walls

The promise of nanoparticles stems from their potential to modify the physical and mechanical properties of polymers for diverse applications, such as photovoltaic cells, sensors, and separation membranes. Methods currently used to create desired nanostructure, however, rely on complex and energy-intensive techniques, such as layer-by-layer or patterning approaches, which are limited in scale and often have poor stability.

Nanoporous Silicon Made Using Solar Energy Can Generate Hydrogen from Water

Porous silicon manufactured in a bottom up procedure using solar energy can be used to generate hydrogen from water, according to a team of Penn State mechanical engineers, who also see applications for batteries, biosensors and optical electronics as outlets for this new material. [More]
New Mathematical Tools to Understand Symmetry in Onion-Like Carbon Nanoparticles

New Mathematical Tools to Understand Symmetry in Onion-Like Carbon Nanoparticles

Symmetry is ubiquitous in the natural world. It occurs in gemstones and snowflakes and even in biology, an area typically associated with complexity and diversity. There are striking examples: the shapes of virus particles, such as those causing the common cold, are highly symmetrical and look like tiny footballs. [More]
