Picture of the day


Heinrich Jaeger and Ward Lopes, Nanowire

False-color transmission electron microscope image of self-assembled silver nanowires produced at the University of Chicago. Silver wires in this image are colored blue-grey. The different color shades correspond to different orientations of small crystallites that have flues to form the wires. Polymethylmethacrylate domains between the wires are not wetted by silver metal and appear pinkish. The center-to-center spacing between neighboring wires is 50 nanometers.
