Title: Nanowires Grown for Potential Biosensing Applications
Description: Researchers at the Emory/Georgia Tech Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence synthesize, by vapor-solid process, aligned ZnO nanowire arrays as shown in the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image above. Growth of aligned arrays of nanowires is of great importance in nanobiotechnology and can be used for biosensing, manipulation of cells, and converting mechanical energy into electricity for powering nanodevices.
