Silicon carbide nanoflowers bloom

Researchers at the University of Cambridge, UK, have grown unusual silicon carbide nanostructures. The team’s vapour-liquid-solid process produced nanoflowers, nanotrees and nanobouquets of the material. “The unique structures will have a range of exciting applications,” said Mark Welland of Cambridge University. “Two that are currently being explored are their use as water-repellent coatings and as a base for a new type of solar cell.” (more on earlier article)
