NIST grows nanowires

NIST has announced (here) that they can grow oriented "nanowires" from ZnO on sapphire. Applied Physics Letters abstract is here. The nanowire sizes are from 3-10 nm. Not only is this scale "real" nanotechnology but several problems are resolved such as orientation determined by the positioning of gold nanodroplet catalysts and atomic precision as the wires are effectively single-crystals.
