Nanowire stability depends on surface tension

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of Arizona, US, have investigated why nanowires can become thin and break at temperatures above absolute zero. They believe that energy fluctuations in the wire create a collective motion, or soliton, among the materialís atoms. The solitons propagate from one end of the wire to the other, causing thinning.
