Feature Tiny Tubes

FSU Professor Kasif Teker and his student, Joseph Oxenham, spent the summer of 2009 working with the tiniest of tubes in FSU’s Nanotechnology Lab, and the result is a new synthesis technique for making silicon carbide nanowires. These microscopic structures have dozens of uses in technology and industry, and may even shed some light, since they glow bluish-green.

Read about this achievement in FSU’s student newspaper, The Bottom Line.
