Nanowire coating self-assembles

Scientists from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Oxford, UK, have found that they could induce the self-assembly of multiple nanolayers of zinc oxide (ZnO) and amorphous carbon on the surface of zinc nanowires. The structures could have applications in improving the properties of nanowires.
