Nanoparticle performance - solving a sticky problem

6 марта, 2019 - 07:23
Nanoparticles can be as small as ten atoms in diameter, and their small size makes them especially susceptible to coarsening with continued use, which reduces functionality and degrades performance. A new NSF Grant will advance the understanding of micro- and nano-surfaces and to engineer more stable nanoparticles.
