A new wrinkle in thin film science

Simple, inexpensive way to measure material properties could impact cosmetics, coating and nanoelectronic industries

09-Aug-2007

A remarkably simple experiment devised by scientists yields important information about the mechanical properties of thin films - nanoscopically thin layers of material that are deposited onto a metal, ceramic or semiconductor base. The research results, funded by the National Science Foundation ...

The longest carbon nanotubes you've ever seen

Crafted with breakthrough manufacturing technique, centimeter-long fibers are visible to the naked eye

14-May-2007

Using techniques that could revolutionize manufacturing for certain materials, researchers have grown carbon nanotubes that are the longest in the world. While still slightly less than 2 centimeters long, each nanotube is 900,000 times longer than its diameter. The fibers - which have the ...

Carbon nanotubes made to stick like a gecko's foot

17-Aug-2005

Renowned for their ability to walk up walls like miniature Spider-Men--or even to hang from the ceiling by one toe--the colorful lizards of the gecko family owe their wall-crawling prowess to their remarkable footpads. Each five-toed foot is covered with microscopic elastic hairs called setae, ...
