Los Alamos researchers report a surprising mechanism that allows nanocrystalline materials to self repair themselves after suffering radiation-induced damage. Nanocrystalline materials are those created from nanosized particles, in the Los Alamos research, copper particles. A single nanosized particle – called a grain – is the size of a virus or even smaller. Nanocrystalline materials consist […]

Boston College Assistant Professor of Chemistry Dunwei Wang’s paper about web-like nanonets developments has been published in Nano Letters. The development suggests a major breakthrough for lithium ion battery technology. The ‘nanonets’ are tiny scaffold-like structures that are built like a web.  Wang’s nanonets are made with titanium disilicide, and coated with silicon particles that […]
