Scientist opens gate to new elements
A leading German researcher in nanotechnology said Tuesday that nano-materials can be created that may fill in the gaps between the elements of the periodic table. Herbert Gleiter, professor of the Institute for Nanotechnology in Karlsruhe told an audience of researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory that isolated crystals of existing elements can be made to turn on or off characteristics of neighboring elements of the periodic table.
