Nanodots below the surface

Abstract:
In a simple procedure developed at the University of Houston, low-energy ion beams have been used to form nanometer-sized metallic structures--quantum dots--in an insulating medium. The Texas researchers show that the technique produces well-defined microscopic composites that may be useful in all-optical switching and computing applications due to the structures' unique optical properties.
