Diamond plates create nanostructures through pressure, not chemistry

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — You wouldn’t think that mechanical force — the simple kind used to eject unruly patrons from bars, shoe a horse or emboss the raised numerals on credit cards — could process nanoparticles more subtly than the most advanced chemistry. Yet, in a recent paper in Nature Communications, Sandia National Laboratories researcher Hongyou […]

Novel nanoparticle production method could lead to better lights, lenses, solar cells

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories has come up with an inexpensive way to synthesize titanium-dioxide nanoparticles and is seeking partners who can demonstrate the process at industrial scale for everything from solar cells to light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Titanium-dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles show great promise as fillers to tune the refractive index of anti-reflective coatings on […]
