Nanosensor turns pressure into light

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology want to put your signature up in lights – tiny lights, that is. Using thousands of nanometer-scale...

Nanogenerators grow strong enough to power small conventional electronics

Blinking numbers on a liquid-crystal display (LCD) often indicate that a device's clock needs resetting. But in the laboratory of Zhong Lin Wang at Georgia Tech, the blinking number on a small LCD signals the success of a five-year effort to po...

Growing nanowires horizontally yields new benefit: ‘nano-LEDs’

While refining their novel method for making nanoscale wires, chemists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) discovered an unexpected...

Off-the-shelf dyes improve solar cells

College Park, MD (August 31, 2010) -- Like most technologies, work on solar devices has proceeded in generational waves. First came bulk silicon-based solar cells built with techniques that borrowed heavily from those used to make computer chips. Nex...
