Research at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point could potentially revolutionize nanotechnology production and put Wisconsin at the forefront of the high-tech industry.
Chemistry professor Michael Zach has developed a method of making large quantities of patterned nanowires by reusing the wire's template, like a rubber stamp. Typically, a pattern is destroyed in the making of one wire.
Zach's process would drastically cut the time needed to create a significant number of nanowires. It currently takes about two and a half weeks to make a gram, Zach said, but his process trims that to about 13 hours, with potential for faster times. Cutting that time so significantly would allow scientists to expand their ideas on how to use the microscopic wires, which are commonly used in computer chips as conductors or semi-conductors.
