Robert Steinberg - nanotechnology

The "vase" was created using a technique called evaporation induced self-assembly. The one on the left was created by pouring a colloid/wetting agent on a surface. After the surface dried (about 20 hours), water was poured on the surface to remove excess pigment (middle figure). The middle figure suggested a vase. And the final image shows how easily it was shaped into a vase on a potters wheel. (see Nature materials July 2003 issue.)
