Research comes through with flying colors

April 24, 2017- 
Like a chameleon changing colors to blend into the environment, Lawrence Livermore researchers have created a technique to change the color of assembled nanoparticles with an electrical stimulant. The team used core/shell nanoparticles to improve color contrast and expand color schemes by using a combination of pigmentary color (from inherent properties) and structural color (from particle...

Livermore scientists purify copper nanowires

Sept. 22, 2016- 
Cell phones and Apple watches could last a little longer due to a new method to create copper nanowires. A team of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists have created a new method to purify copper nanowires with a near-100 percent yield. These nanowires are often used in nanoelectronic applications. The research, which appears in the online edition of Chemical Communications...
