Self-assembled nanoparticles are insulated
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico say they've perfected a commercially feasible way for orderly arrays of nanoparticles to self-assemble, each insulated from the others by silicon dioxide. The technique will not only enable new devices, the researchers said, but could also solve one of the longest-standing problems with nanoparticles: forming orderly connections between the microscale and the nanoscale.
