Application of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology

INFOPACK

MOSI nanowires promise a variety of possible applications, ranging from monomolecular substrates for biomolecular sensors to fillers in advanced composites. Other applications include field emission devices and tribological composites.

 
Nanocomposites

Conducting transparent composites and self-lubricationg composites are just two possible applications of MoSI nanowires embedded in a polymer matrix.

 
Field Emission

MoSI nanowire tips have been shown to have superior properties for field emission applications.
