How are nanowires boosting research results? And how are EU-funded researchers advancing our knowledge of nanowires and their applications? CORDIS Express explores the power of the nanowire!
For example, the NWS4LIGHT project, which concluded in May, used nanowire technology to overcome the performance and efficiency barriers associated with current planar nitride-based LEDs for lighting applications. Meanwhile, the EU-funded UNIVSEM project has developed a unique tool that enables scientists to carry out numerous nanoscale measurements in one go. This could help further advances in the field of silver nanowires (AgNWs). These nanowires can form a transparent conductive network, and thus are a promising candidate for solar cell contacts or transparent layers in displays.
This edition of CORDIS Express takes a look at these EU-funded results and others as well as related news.
