RPI researchers use bacteria to form nanospheres
New nanotechnology research from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute may lead to smaller, faster semiconductors. Two researchers with ties to the school published a paper focusing on nano-sized spheres of selenium, an ingredient in semiconductors and other electronics. The research could lead to the production of nanospheres, nanowires and other nanostructures with precise atomic arrangements for smaller, faster semiconductors or other electronic devices.
