Intricate, curving 3-D nanostructures created using capillary
action forces


from Nanowerk News

Twisting spires, concentric rings, and gracefully bending petals are a few of the new 3-D shapes that the University of Michigan engineers can make from carbon nanotubes using a new manufacturing process. The process is called "capillary forming," and it takes advantage of capillary action, the phenomenon at work when liquids seem to defy gravity and travel up a drinking straw of their own accord. The university is pursuing patent protection for the intellectual property, and is seeking commercialization partners to help bring the technology to market. more
