News Flash: Rice University Create Cables Made Of Nanowires That Could Replace Copper Wires.
Popular Science (9/8, Boyle) reports, "Cables made out of nanowires could be just as efficient as the copper cables we've been using for more than a century, but at a fraction of the weight, according to a new paper. Braiding billions of carbon nanotubes into a nanowire cable can efficiently replace copper in a light bulb circuit."
SCME produced Animations
In addition to the links below, you can also watch several of our animations through our YouTube channel: SCME on YouTube
Crystal Origami - short animation showing how to construct the crystal model - based on Jack Judy's Silicon Crystal Origami model. IPod MP4 file
Cantilever Array Animation - depicts the final step in fabricating an array of cantilevers used in a chemical sensor array, for example.
Backside Pressure Sensor Etch - depicts the process of completing the backside etch of the SCME pressure sensor (anisotropic etch of crystalline silicon)
Pressure sensor process animation gives the viewer an overview of the pressure sensor process used at the MTTC and now at both the NDSCS CNTT - Center for Nanoscience Technology Training in North Dakota and the University of South Florida's Nanotechnology Research Education Center.
