Virus creates nanoelectrode for battery

Abstract:
Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), US, have used a genetically engineered virus as a template for making nanowires of cobalt oxide and gold at room temperature. The virus also self-assembles into sheets on polymer layers. In combination with the nanowire treatment, this could produce a flexible material suitable for use as the electrode of a lithium ion battery.

(Ed.'s note: another good article on this at NewScientist Battery electrodes self-assembled by viruses.)
