Brookhaven Scientists Create a New Nanostructure

Abstract:
Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have devised a method to create a new, intriguing nanostructure: ultra-thin, ribbon-like "nanobelts" bound to nanotubes. Their research achieves several "firsts" in the field of nanoscience, the study of materials on the scale of a billionth of a meter. Additionally, the new structure, described in the June 4, 2005, online version of Nano Letters, is likely to have unique electrical and mechanical properties, and may be useful in many developing nanotechnologies.

"We have produced nanobelts that have controllable thicknesses of about two to five nanometers. It is significant work, since the controllability, the thinness, and the methods we used are all new achievements," said Brookhaven materials scientist Wei-Qiang Han, the study's lead researcher. "But, we are most excited about creating a brand-new type of nanostructure."
