One Direction: Researchers grow nanocircuitry with semiconducting graphene nanoribbonsOctober 13, 2015

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin at Madison are the first to grow self-directed graphene nanoribbons on the surface of the semiconducting material germanium. This allows the semiconducting industry to tailor specific paths for nanocircuitry in their technologies. The findings were confirmed at Argonne’s Center for Nanoscale Materials.

Gold nanomembranes resist bending in new experimentOctober 8, 2015

The first direct measurement of resistance to bending in a nanoscale membrane has been made by scientists from the University of Chicago, Peking University, the Weizmann Institute of Science and Argonne National Laboratory.

‘Greener’ way to assemble materials for solar applicationsOctober 8, 2015

Polymers used in solar cells today require solvents that can harm the environment, but scientists using the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne have found a “greener” way to control the assembly of photovoltaic polymers in water using a surfactant— a detergent-like molecule—as a template.
