Gold-tipped nanocrystals developed by Hebrew University researchers

“Nanodumbells” - gold-tipped nanocrystals which can be used as highly-efficient building blocks for devices in the emerging nanotechnology revolution - have been developed by researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The nanodumbells - shaped somewhat like mini-weightlifting bars - offer a solution to problems of building new, nanocrystal transistors, the basic component of computer chips.
