Urchin-shaped nano-batteries

Abstract:
Tweaking a standard chemical method to make nanotubes has provided researchers with a structure that looks just like a miniature sea urchin. These structures, composed of vanadium oxide, roll up during the reaction to form hollow tubes. By varying the reaction researchers were able to ‘grow' these tubes into spherical/radial structures which resemble the common sea urchin ("Atomic Layer Structure of Vanadium Oxide Nanotubes Grown on Nanourchin Structures").
