Enhanced Thermoelectric Performance of Rough Silicon Nanowires.
Approximately 90 per cent of the world's power is generated by heat engines that use fossil fuel combustion as a heat source and typically operate at 30-40 per cent efficiency, such that roughly 15…
Enhanced thermoelectric performance of rough silicon nanowires
Electrochemical synthesis of large-area, wafer-scale arrays of rough Si nanowires that are 20–300 nm in diameter show promise as high-performance, scalable thermoelectric materials.

D-amino acids act in an analogous manner to prevent biofilm development in B. subtilis and S. aureus and it is shown that surfaces impregnated with D-aminos acids were effective in preventing biofilm growth.

In contrast to previous models, the present study suggests that phonon-boundary scattering is highly frequency dependent, and ranges from nearly ballistic to completely diffusive, which can explain the unexpected linear temperature dependence.

By manipulating the multilayer pH or ionic strength assembly conditions or both, which in turn dictate the molecular architecture of the thin films, one may powerfully direct a single multilayers combination to be either cell adhesive or cell resistant.
Controlled growth of Si nanowire arrays for device integration.
By controlling various aspects of nanowire growth, these methods will enable their efficient and economical incorporation into devices to enable their practical integration into devices.
Silicon Vertically Integrated Nanowire Field Effect Transistors
Silicon nanowires have received considerable attention as transistor components because they represent a facile route toward sub-100-nm single-crystalline Si features. Herein we demonstrate the…
Single crystalline mesoporous silicon nanowires.
A novel electroless etching synthesis of monolithic, single-crystalline, mesoporous silicon nanowire arrays with a high surface area and luminescent properties consistent with conventional porous silicon materials is demonstrated.
Structure of Microbial Nanowires Reveals Stacked Hemes that Transport Electrons over Micrometers
Bacteria pattern spontaneously on periodic nanostructure arrays.
Bacterial ordering and oriented attachment on the single-cell level induced by nanometer-scale periodic surface features are demonstrated, which can control natural biofilm organization on the cellular level.
