A new fabrication technique reported in Nature Materials

The new fabrication technique, reported in Nature Materials by Bayindir research group at UNAM-National Nanotechnology Researsh Center, Bilkent University is essentially a size reduction technique. Controlled thermal size reduction is repeated iteratively until a macroscopic rod is scaled down to nano sizes radially while elongated axially. In this way a variety of semiconducting, piezoelectric and polymer nanowires and tubes can be produced. Millions of ordered indefinitely long nanowires, nanotubes, and …
