Electric current restores function to damaged nanobelts

By / December 7, 2010

After denting the zinc oxide nanobelt with an AFM tip, electric current helped the nanobelts heal and regain much of their function. (Credit: Nano Letters) Xiaodong Li at the University of South Carolina in Columbia and his team of researchers found that applying electric current to zinc oxide nanobelts enable them to “self-heal” from mechanical…
