Zinc-oxide structure joins nanoscale-device push

Nanorings, a new type of geometry in the quest to build nanoscale devices, hold out near-term promise as injectable pressure sensors to monitor the human body. The uniform, crystalline zinc-oxide rings, 1 to 4 microns in diameter and 30 nanometers thick, were produced by a research team at the Georgia Institute of Technology's Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
