Nanotechnology: Wires on water

Abstract:
A centuries-old technique for transporting timber is the inspiration for a new method of assembling nanowires into large-scale, ordered patterns that could form the basis of a new generation of electronic devices. What do logs and nanowires have in common? They are both essentially one-dimensional objects, their diameters insignificant compared with their length. Over the past few years, one-dimensional nanostructures (whether you call them nanowires, nanorods or nanowhiskers) have attracted much attention, and considerable progress has already been made in their synthesis and their application in devices.
