Scientists forge nanogold chains with atomic precision
Jyvaskyla, Finland (UPI) Sep 22, 2016
Bling isn't just for athletes and musicians. Recently, a team of engineers got in on the game, only on a much smaller scale. A group of scientists at the University of Jyvaskyla in Finland forged short chains of gold nanoparticles with unparalleled precision. The cores of these well-defined nanostructures are composed of just a few hundred metal atoms. Researchers say their new jewelry is ideal for the study of interactions between light and matter in metallic nanostructures. The gold ... read more
