Sandia researchers create nanocrystals nature's way

Abstract:
Sandia researchers are developing complex nanomaterials that look strikingly similar to the microstructures of diatoms and seashells. The materials may have potential for a wide range of applications. Jun Liu, manager for the Department of Chemical Synthesis and Nanomaterials at Sandia, said the goal is to develop general science and technology for reliable and scalable production of nanoscale materials based on environmentally benign chemical processes.
