    Electromagnetic field directs shape formed by gas phase metal molecules — ScienceDaily

    In order for metal nanomaterials to deliver on their promise to energy and electronics, they need to shape up — literally. To deliver reliable mechanical and electric properties, nanomaterials must have consistent, predictable shapes and surfaces, as well as scalable production techniques. UC Riverside engineers are solving this problem by vaporizing metals within a magnetic […] More
