Nebraska Engineering team find defect that gives advantages to nanowires

Peter and Eli SutterWhile attempting to grow an optimal nanowire using crystals, Peter Sutter, Eli Sutter, and Shawn Wimer have found that a defect - a screw dislocation - occuring in the growth process causes the layers of crystals to rotate along an axis as they form. This defect creates twists that give these nanowires advantages, particularly in electronics and light emission. (4/22/19)
