Several recent, unrelated posts have been about materials with nanoscale porosity (diamond aerogels, chalcogenide PCMM). Here is another one, but perhaps this one will prove to be not so unrelated. In the June 3 issue of Science, authors Jin and Weissmüller describe a…

Ferroelectric nanowires and other emerging electronic materials

By / April 12, 2010

According to a news release from the University of Arkansas, researchers have discovered a new phase in ferroelectric nanowires that could be manipulated for electronic devices. The group, that included collaborators from UA, École Centrale Paris, the University of South Florida the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, used a combination of experiments and computational approaches…
