Nickel nanowire caps lead to manipulation

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US have capped copper-tin alloy nanowires with nickel. The nickel endcaps enabled positioning of the nanowires by magnetic fields. “This is an exciting new method for the manipulation of nanowires because it is so versatile,” Wendy Crone of the University of Wisconsin-Madison told nanotechweb.org. “The options are quite broad for the material deposited between the nickel."
