Nanocrystal research unraveling nature's secrets
In nature, incredibly complex nanostructures pervade every bulk material, from macroscopic sea shells to microscopic diatoms. Now, Sandia National Laboratories researchers say they have begun to unravel nature's secrets on the road to developing a "wetware" manufacturing process that is expected to produce inexpensive, waste-free materials with more finely tuned properties than previously achievable.
