Researchers Claim Self-directed Assembly Breakthrough - EE Times

Researchers Claim Self-directed Assembly Breakthrough - EE Times

SAN FRANCISCO—Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and IBM have discovered a trenching capability that could be harnessed for building devices through self-directed assembly. The researchers say that nanoparticles of gold can “operate like snow blowers” to churn through layers of indium phosphide and other semiconductor materials, forming nanochannels. The capability could potentially be used to integrate lasers, sensors, wave guides and other optical components into so called “lab-on-a-chip” devices now being used for disease diagnosis, screening experimental materials and drugs, DNA forensics and others, according to the researchers. The channel-digging capability of the gold particles was discovered by accident. An experiment in the formation of nanowires failed due to a contaminant. “We were very disappointed, at first,” said NIST ...
