When Small Gets Big

George Malliaras and his colleagues recently had a bright idea—literally. As director of the Cornell University NanoScale Facility, he is among several researchers working on nanolamps—light-emitting microfibers no larger than a virus. The technology promises a new generation of flexible displays that can be integrated into a variety of products and perhaps even woven into clothing. "Here we have devices made out of fiber," Malliaras said. "You talk about textile, and your mind doesn't necessarily go to electronic devices."
