Breakthrough in nanotechnology material science
Orlando FL (SPX) Aug 30, 2012
A University of Central Florida assistant professor has developed a new material using nanotechnology, which could help keep pilots and sensitive equipment safe from destructive lasers. UCF Assistant Professor Jayan Thomas, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University Associate Professor Rongchao Jin chronicle their work in the July issue of the journal Nano Letters. Thomas is working with gold nanoparticles and studying their properties when they are shrunk into a small size regime called nan ... read more
