  • n. Plural form of nanopillar.

Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • Though the silicon layer is thin, a photon still has a relatively long path to travel down the length of the nanopillars, and a good chance of transferring its energy to an electron.

  • The cells designed by Solasta are built on a substrate forested with long, thin, vertically arrayed nanopillars.

    Technology Review RSS Feeds

  • Solasta fabricates on arrays of nanopillars, rather than flat areas, boosting the efficiency of amorphous silicon solar cells to about 10 percent -- still less than crystalline silicon panels, but more than the thin-film amorphous silicon panels on the market today.

    Technology Review RSS Feeds

  • As yet, there are no immediate applications for the new materials, although it may be possible to combine the nanopillars into arrays, which could then form the building blocks of larger hierarchical structures with the strength and ductility of the smaller objects.

  • The methods that have been developed and used for measuring the mechanical properties of isolated individual nanobuilding blocks include uniaxial tensile loading using a nanomanipulation stage, in-situ compression of nanoparticles and nanopillars, mechanical / electric-field induced resonance, AFM bending, and nanoindentation.

    iMechanica - Comments

  • From a fully atomistic modeling standpoint, it would help if the nanopillars could be decreased to 50 nm and below in diameter.

  • The UCLA team said it developed a one-by-two-centimeter silicon chip covered with densely packed nanopillars incubated in a culture medium with breast cancer cells.
