Nanobelts coil up for piezoelectricity
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology, US, have made single-crystal zinc oxide (ZnO) nanobelts that spontaneously rolled themselves up into helical structures. The nanohelixes had piezoelectric properties and could have applications in microsystems and the biomedical field.
