Abstract

original image

Vertically aligned ultralong metallic micro/nanowires are fabricated by fiber-drawing nanomanufacturing, where the size reduction is achieved by repeating a simple draw-cut-stack process. This method can control the diameter, length, and interwire spacing over a large range, and provide ordered, nanostructured materials at low-cost for a range of applications, as reported by Ming Su and co-workers on p. 1310.
