Indian Americans Patent First Generation Nanostructures

Abstract:
Copper as strong as steel. Ceramics tough enough to be used in car engines. Chips holding 10 terabits of data or five hundred times the existing storage density available today. And lighting that uses one-fifth the energy of standard fluorescent lighting and last for approximately 50 years.

All this has been the promise of Nanotechnology. But, so far, the greatest impediment to developing these advances has been creating usable nanostructures that self-assemble.

Last week, Indian American engineers at North Carolina State University crossed that threshold, receiving patents for two processes that help break that barrier.
