Self-assembling polymers provide thin nanowire template



Lemont IL (SPX) Apr 13, 2017
For the chips in our computers and smartphones to get faster and faster, their components - the circuits and wires through which signals flow - have to get smaller and smaller. The miniaturization of these wires has taken scientists on a journey almost to the atomic level. Recently, scientists have begun to address - and now to surmount - certain barriers in physics that have prevented them from making even smaller wires. In a recent study, a team of researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy' ... read more
