Microengineered conducting composites from nanochannel templates


  • Work supported by the U. S. Army Research Office and the U. S. Office Naval Research.


Novel nanostructures of conducting materials (e.g. see Figure) generated by the template approach are becoming available through a variety os syntheses, processes, and hosts. Here, a class of electronic composites prepared by the injection of the conducting melt into nanochannel templates is described. The injection process, and the analysis and potential uses of the composite microstructures are discussed.
