Single quantum dot nanowire photodetectors
Moving a step closer toward quantum computing, a research team in the Netherlands recently fabricated a photodetector based on a single nanowire, in which the active element is a single quantum dot with a volume of a mere 7,000 cubic nanometers. View News Article (2010-12-14)

Nanowire generates power by harvesting energy from the environment
As the sizes of sensor networks and mobile devices shrink toward the microscale, and even nanoscale, there is a growing need for suitable power sources. Because even the tiniest battery is too big to be used in nanoscale devices, scientists are exploring nanosize systems that can salvage energy from the environment. View News Article (2007-09-28)

Self-assembled nanowires could make chips smaller and faster
Researchers at the University of Illinois have found a new way to make transistors smaller and faster. The technique uses self-assembled, self-aligned, and defect-free nanowire channels made of gallium arsenide. View News Article (2009-04-21)

Peering Inside Nanowires
Semiconductor nanowires - tiny wires with a diameter as small as a few billionths of a meter - hold promise for devices of the future, both in technology like light-emitting diodes and in new versions of transistors and circuits for next generation of electronics. View News Article (2009-04-02)

Nanowire clothing could keep people warm -- without heating everything else
To stay warm when temperatures drop outside, we heat our indoor spaces -- even when no one is in them. But scientists have now developed a novel nanowire coating for clothes that can both generate heat and trap the heat from our bodies better than regular clothes. View News Article (2015-01-08)

Nanowires Have the Power to Revolutionize Solar Energy
Imagine a solar panel more efficient than today's best solar panels, but using 10 000 times less material. This is what EPFL researchers expect given recent findings on these tiny filaments called nanowires. View News Article (2013-04-09)

Growing whiskers that won`t need shaving
As manufacturers try to incorporate more and more functions into electronic gadgets like mobile phones and laptop computers, and at the same time decrease their size, the need for smaller electronic circuit components increases. At the 26th International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors in Edinburgh on Thursday 1 August, Prof Lars Samuelson from Lund University in Sweden will describe...

Boiling breakthrough: Nano-coating doubles rate of heat transfer
By adding an incredibly thin coating of alumina to a metal surface, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have doubled the rate that heat travels from a solid surface - such as a pot on a stove - into the liquid in the pot.  View News Article (2012-02-16)

Scientists demonstrate method for integrating nanowire devices directly onto silicon
Applied scientists at Harvard University in collaboration with researchers from the German universities of Jena, Gottingen, and Bremen, have developed a new technique for fabricating nanowire photonic and electronic integrated circuits that may one day be suitable for high-volume commercial production. View News Article (2008-05-09)

New fabrication technique yields nanoscale UV LEDs
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in collaboration with scientists from the University of Maryland and Howard University, have developed a technique to create tiny, highly efficient light-emitting diodes (LEDs) from nanowires. View News Article (2007-05-29)
