Nanowire Research at Stevens Makes Cover of Applied Physics Letters

February 23, 2011

Constantin Chassapis An article by Stevens Institute of Technology researchers and featured as the cover page of Applied Physics Letters, focuses on nanowires, structures that are mere nanometers in diameter. Nanowires have enormous potential in nanotechnology to create tiny circuits that would make nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and nanobiotechnology possible. Such devices could forever change the way we harness energy, communicate and treat disease. Full Story
