Magnetic and Semiconducting Nanocrystals Can Self-Assemble, Says Stephen O'Brien

Nanocrystals, a benchmark material for nanotechnology, are one-billionth of a meter in size and are carefully manufactured by the millions in labs, explains Stephen O'Brien, assistant professor of applied physics and mathematics. Together with researchers at IBM, he and his research team have demonstrated that you can design small regions of magnetic and semiconducting nanocrystals that will assemble into a new and unique material.
