APS Meeting 2012
Nanowire Hay Bales and Devil’s Nano-Postpile are two images drawn from Pegah Hosseinpour’s work on Fe-doped titania nanotubes and are presented in the image gallery at virtual pressroom of American Physical Society (APS) March meeting 2012, which takes place American Physical Society (APS) meetings. These images are associated with her paper presented on the same subject at APS March meeting.
Nanowire Hay Bales
Scanning electron micrograph of iron-titanium nanowires.
Researchers have incorporated iron into minuscule nanotubes. These nanotubes look like hay bales and may lead to new nanostructures with useful magnetic, semiconducting, and catalytic properties.
Devil’s Nano Postpile
Nanotubes mimic the Devil’s Postpile National Monument in eastern California.
Devil’s postpile is an unusual formation of basalt found near Mammoth Mountain in California. Researchers have constructed tiny nanotubes that look like the geological structure with iron-incorporated titania, and may lead to new nanostructures with useful magnetic, semiconducting, and catalytic properties.
