NanoScienceWorks.org looks at the dynamic area of nano-semoconductors, and how these tiny devices are fundamentally changing the worlds of computing and communications. We speak with the author of Nano-Semiconductor: Devices and Technology, Dr. Krzysztof Iniewski, who manages R&D developments at Redlen Technologies, Inc., a start-up firm in British Columbia, Canada. His research interests are in VLSI circuits for medical and security applications.

Researchers at University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) have developed a supercapacitor or electrochemical capacitor (EC) composed of an expanded network of graphene — a one-atom-thick layer of graphitic carbon. The team demonstrated excellent mechanical and electrical properties as well as exceptionally high surface area.

A team of MIT researchers has found a way of precisely controlling the width and composition of nanowires as they grow, making it possible to grow complex structures designed for particular applications.
