Nanowire printing

  August 18/25, 2008
Grow nanowires on one surface then transfer them to another and you have the key to combining arrays of different kinds of nanowires to make electronic devices. A prototype photodetector that combines cadmium selenide light-detecting nanowires with transistors made of germanium-silicon core-shell nanowires shows the technique's potential.

The process is a step toward being able to manufacture faster, cheaper electronics using nanowires.
