Journal Publishes C.U. Nano Research

Abstract:
Cornell research to be published today in the Journal of Science features a new engineering technique that allows the synthesis of unprecedented small nanostructures using self-assembling macromolecules.

Inspired by the self-assembly of organic structures such as animal cell membranes from simpler organic compounds, the technique requires only the synthesis of the macromolecule polymers as well as a controlled increase in temperature to produce a variety of minute structures ranging from tiny conducting cylinders to rigid polygonal structures.

The research, compiled by a team led by Prof. Ulrich Wiessner, materials science & engineering, is expected to be applicable to various engineering industries. In particular, "self-assembly is now being discussed in the framework of the microelectronics industry, which will hit a wall in about 10 years in terms of miniaturizing even further," Wiessner said.
