Innovative SLU Lab Develops New Way to Grow Nanowires & 2D Nanostructures for Emerging Technologies

Saint Louis University researcher, Irma Kuljanishvili, Ph.D. shares how she has developed a promising technique to produce nanoscale materials using simple processes. Kuljanishvili says the new mask-free fabrication approach that she implemented in her research uses a liquid ink precursor to produce nanoscale materials, and that it allows researchers to predict and optimize the geometric shape of the resulting structure. Kuljanishvili and her students explain the process and how they innovate to achieve success. In one recently published success, the team synthesized nanowires out of zinc oxide. Zinc oxide nanomaterials have unique sensing capabilities and hold promise in the development of a wide range of technological applications.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
