Unique Properties for Silicon Nanowires

from the this-trick-is-done-with-wires dept.
GinaMiller alerted us to a Georgia Tech press release describing a study of the electronic properties of silicon nanowires. [Full article requires PRL subscription.] "Large-scale simulations of silicon nanowires just several atoms in diameter have given device designers new clues about how these nanometer-scale devices will one day perform. The work provides a basis for anticipating how the quantum mechanical effects that dominate behavior of materials at this size scale will alter the operation of future generations of electronic devices."
