Nano research fit for a king

Rice University scientists test strength of composite bonds one nanotube at a time

Arthur pulled a sword from a stone, proving to a kingdom that right beats might. Researchers at Rice University are making the same point in the nanoscale realm.

Lou’s clues lead to nano revelation: Gold and silver nanowires bond naturally, stay strong

Gold nanowire bond stays strong naturally

 

Welding uses heat to join pieces of metal in everything from circuits to skyscrapers. But researchers have found a way to beat the heat on the nanoscale. Jun Lou, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and materials science, is quoted. Yang Lu, a graduate student in mechanical engineering and materials science, is mentioned.
