New look for nanowire devices

German physicists have made a new type of transistor by growing semiconductor nanowires in a polymer stack. Jie Chen and Rolf Könenkamp at the Hahn-Meitner Institute in Berlin say that their process avoids many of the basic problems encountered in making such 'hybrid' structures, and that their transistors are much more robust than previous, similar devices.
