Zinc oxide nanowires...

Single crystalline ZnO nanowires can be synthesized in a rational manner using the simple vapor transport and condensation process presented in the feature article by P. Yang and co-workers. Control of the orientation, position, diameter, and morphology of the nanowires is demonstrated and lasing action is observed in nanowire arrays without the need for fabricated mirrors (P. Yang et al., May 17; Adv. Funct. Mater. 2002, 12, 323-331).
