Nanomaterials Go Beyond Post-Silicon to Post-Semiconductor

Two years ago, Yap and his team developed a way to make a virtual carpet out of BNNTs. In this latest research, which was published in the journal Advanced Materials (“Room Temperature Tunneling Behavior of Boron Nitride Nanotubes Functionalized with Gold Quantum Dots ”), the MTU team devised a method for depositing gold quantum dots on the BNNT carpet using a laser. The BNNTs turn out to be perfect for the job. They have controllable and uniform diameters so they can confine the size of the quantum dots.
