Corkscrew-Shaped Nano-Antennae

Authors: George Rajna

The nanostructures from Katja Höflich's HZB team are shaped like corkscrews and made of silver. [47] In a new study, now published on Science Advances, Sam Vaziri and co-workers at Theiss Research and the departments of Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the Precourt Institute of Energy at Stanford University, Stanford California, demonstrated unusually high thermal isolation across ultra-thin heterostructures. [46] Swansea University scientists have reported a new approach to measuring the conductivity between identical carbon nanotubes which could be used to help improve the efficiency of electrical power cables in the future.
