NNI in the News
NREL researchers made 'black silicon'-- nano-islands of silver on a silicon wafer with billions of holes-- that reduces light reflection allowing for greater energy capture.
Students at Duke University used an aerosol jet printer and nanoparticle inks to create a material capable of storing data that is also incredibly flexible.
The Lawrence Livermore National Lab research team were able to produce a predetermined architecture for a graphene-based aerogel, which previously had always been random, by using 3-D printing.
An archived version of the webinar to launch the EHS Research Strategy is now available on Nano.gov. NNI experts highlighted new elements and took questions from the public on this key strategy document.
Although the nanodrillers bear no physical resemblance to a machine we would recognize, the molecules strung together by chemists run like an electric motor.
