Scientists Model Silicon Nanotubes That Appear to Be Metal

Abstract:
Using one large computer, one borrowed graduate student, one good friend and one piece of advice from dear old Dad, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln chemist and his team came up with an unexpected discovery - at extremes of size, silicon may behave like a metal. Xiao Cheng Zeng and his team used UNL's powerful supercomputer, PrairieFire, to create models of silicon tubes less than 1 nanometer in diameter.
