UI Researchers Miniaturize Mechanics, Materials in Nanodevices

While microchips and nanochips now are manufactured by the millions for computing use, lesser-known applications of nanomechanisms and materials are in the making as well. A cluster of University of Idaho researchers now lays the groundwork for Idaho and the nation to bring these miniscule technologies to industry and the marketplace. They are perfecting wires, rods and springs of nanoscale proportions and are developing processes to fabricate electronic, optical, biological and magnetic nanomaterials.
