NCSU physicists find new way to "look" at nanostructures

from the why-didn't-we-think-of-this-before dept.
Senior Associate Braun Brelin brings our attention to an item from Science Daily: " A team of North Carolina State University physicists has discovered a new method for measuring the molecular properties of materials, which could assist in the development of a wide variety of cutting-edge nanostructure technologies. The technique…measures the behavior of molecules, at a scale of one-billionth of a meter, by reflecting light off the material being studied…'we can look at nanostructures of all sorts: semiconductors, biological materials and nanofabricated structures…If you have something small, nanometers in size, and want to know how it fits together, this is the way to do it.'…Science policy experts say nanotechnology advances could result in a science and technology revolution. But first, they say, we have to understand the principles of structures at such tiny scales. The work of Hallen and his colleagues is an important step in that direction."
