The days of self-assembling nanoparticles taking hours to form a film over a microscopic-sized wafer are over. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have devised a technique whereby self-assembling nanoparticle arrays can form a highly ordered thin film over macroscopic distances in one minute. Ting Xu, pictured here, holds joint appointments with Berkeley Lab’s Materials Sciences Division and UC Berkeley’s Departments of Materials Sciences and Engineering, and Chemistry.
