John Bahns, Subramanian Sankaranarayanan, Liaohai Chen and Stephen Gray find new way to assemble nanoparticles.
Scientists use light to join nanoparticles into new materials

For many years, scientists have searched for ways to assemble nanoparticles—tiny bits of matter less than a millionth of an inch across—into larger structures of any desired shape and form at will. This effect has been achieved in a new study by using a laser as if it were a magic wand, creating an assembled, continuous filament as the laser beam is moved around.
