Creating electricity with wind and wire

A scientist in India is examining ways to generate electric current by blowing gas onto a wire.

Ajay Sood first noticed the effect in 2003 when he was studying how liquids applied to a carbon nanotube can direct the flow of electrons.

"The effect is not unique to nanotubes," he said in an interview at the institute.
