Fabricating Crystallinity Unique Carbon Nanowires (~5nm) with Ultrahigh Electrical Conductivity

UCI engineers have designed a new protocol for the synthesis of technology materials that uses electrospinning to draw polymers into ~5nm carbon nanowires.

Nanocellulose-based Aerogel Fibers as Insulation

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have produced continuous, sheath-core, coaxial fibers with highly porous, nanocellulose, aerogel cores for use as high-performance insulators.

DNA-based, Read-Only Memory (ROM) for Data Storage Applications

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have collaborated with colleagues at the University of Washington and Emory University to develop a DNA-based, memory and data storage technology that integrates seamlessly with semiconductor-based technologies and conventional electronic devices.

Magnetically Tunable Plasmon Coupling of Gold Nanoshells

Prof. Yadong Yin and colleagues from the University of California, Riverside have developed a novel growth process that allows for the creation of high-quality Au nanoshells on relatively small magnetic Fe3O4 cores (20–150 nm) with excellent plasmonic properties. The nanoscale magnetic assembly strategy allows for active tuning of the plasmon coupling of nanostructures  Fig 1: The UV–vis spectra of the UCR nanoshells with different core diameters.
