  • Lin and his team spent a year engineering a coating from seven layers of silicon dioxide and titanium dioxide nanorods.

    Sustainable: Solar

  • Using a technique called oblique angle deposition, the researchers deposited silica nanorods at an angle of precisely 45 degrees on top of a thin film of aluminum nitride, which is a semiconducting material used in advanced light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
