Nano Materials 101: Researchers Develop Design Rules for Nanoparticles
Lead author Dr. Chad Mirkin of Northwestern University and research team create rules that enable scientists to make any structure for almost all applications
This comprehensive discovery of the design rules for nanomaterials was recently published and was funded by the National Science Foundation. A set of rules for consistently arranging nanoparticles is critical for the scientific community so that they can fully capitalize on nanotechnology’s potential in various materials applications for industries ranging from medicine to energy.
