World's smallest battery created at CINT nanotechnology center
A benchtop version of the world's smallest battery - its anode a single nanowire one seven-thousandth the thickness of a human hair -has been created by a team led by Sandia National Laboratories researcher Jianyu Huang. View News Article (2010-12-10)


Understanding mechanical properties of silicon nanowires paves way for nanodevices
Silicon nanowires are attracting significant attention from the electronics industry due to the drive for ever-smaller electronic devices, from cell phones to computers. View News Article (2009-11-12)


Key ingredient: Change in material boosts prospects of ultrafast single-photon detector
By swapping one superconducting material for another, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have found a practical way to boost the efficiency of the world's fastest single-photon detector, while also extending light sensitivity to longer wavelengths.  View News Article (2011-07-01)


Solar power's future brawl
A trio of researchers at North Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota have turned to computer modeling to help decide which of two competing materials should get its day in the sun as the nanoscale energy-harvesting technology of future solar panels -- quantum dots or nanowires.  View News Article (2013-10-02)


Laser light at useful wavelengths from semiconductor nanowires
Thread-like semiconductor structures called nanowires, so thin that they are effectively one-dimensional, show potential as lasers for applications in computing, communications, and sensing.  View News Article (2013-12-05)


Penn: Nanoplasmonic 'Whispering Gallery' Breaks Emission Time Record in Semiconductors
Renaissance architects demonstrated their understanding of geometry and physics when they built whispering galleries into their cathedrals. View News Article (2011-07-25)


A giant step toward tiny functional nanowires
Carving a telephone pole is easy if you have the right tools, say a power saw and some large chisels. And with some much tinier tools you could even carve a design into a paper clip if you wanted to. But shrink your sights down to the nanoscale, to a nanowire that is 1,000 times smaller than the diameter of a paper clip, and you find there are no physical tools to do the job properly. View News Article (2005-07-01)


Nanowires can detect molecular signs of cancer, scientists find
Harvard University researchers have found that molecular markers indicating the presence of cancer in the body are readily detected in blood scanned by special arrays of silicon nanowires - even when these cancer markers constitute only one hundred-billionth of the protein present in a drop of blood. View News Article (2005-09-26)


Advancing secure communications: A better single-photon emitter for quantum cryptography
In a development that could make the advanced form of secure communications known as quantum cryptography more practical, University of Michigan researchers have demonstrated a simpler, more efficient single-photon emitter that can be made using traditional semiconductor processing techniques. View News Article (2013-04-10)


Livermore researchers develop battery-less chemical detector
Unlike many conventional chemical detectors that require an external power source, Lawrence Livermore researchers have developed a nanosensor that relies on semiconductor nanowires, rather than traditional batteries. View News Article (2011-04-07)
