Ultra-thin nanowires can trap electron 'twisters' that disrupt superconductors
Superconductor materials are prized for their ability to carry an electric current without resistance, but this valuable trait can be crippled or lost when electrons swirl into tiny tornado-like formations called vortices. View News Article (2015-02-25)

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)

Wearable sensor clears path to long-term EKG, EMG monitoring
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new, wearable sensor that uses silver nanowires to monitor electrophysiological signals, such as electrocardiography (EKG) or electromyography (EMG). View News Article (2015-01-20)

Laser light at useful wavelengths from semiconductor nanowires
