More on functional nanowire composites

More coverage of the work to create cylinder-shaped nanoscopic nanowire bundles that interweave substances with different compositions and properties (see Nanodot post from 2 February 2002). As a result, well-defined junctions and interfaces with potentially important functionalities were incorporated within individual nanowires. The alternating bands of different semiconductor materials in the super-thin wires serve as the electron and photon manipulators.
