Model Leverages Nano Tethers

Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Michigan have shown in computer simulations that it is possible to cause structures like sheets, wires and tubes to spontaneously assemble by starting with nanoparticles that have long, tether-like molecules attached, then causing the tethers and nanoparticles to part.
