Nanowires formed using extrusion technique

Abstract:
A newly discovered natural way to form nanoscale wires from bulk droplets could simultaneously cut their cost and increase yields. The discovery could also lead to advances in composite materials, electronics and pharmaceuticals, researchers said. "Today, if you want a tiny wire, you force material through a tiny nozzle," said the University of Chicago's Wendy Zhang, who helped explain the mechanism behind the extrusion method. "At the nanoscale, however, we think it will be better to use naturally occurring processes like ours, rather than brute force. We also believe our method will be more economical than growing high-aspect-ratio shapes like wires." (more on earlier article)
