Dr. Yuris Dzenis is making continuous carbon nanofibers
A UNL team led by Yuris Dzenis (above) is making
continuous carbon nanofibers, which offer advantages over nanotubes alone in structural materials.

The work of a UNL research team that includes David J. Sellmyer has been published in Advanced Materials.

The technique relies on the fabrication of nanoclusters as building blocks with unusual crystal structures and outstanding magnetic properties. The system enables the synthesis of particles under 10 nanometers in size, which can be co-deposited with atoms forming a second phase with properties that complement those of the nanocluster phase.

The technique was published in a study last week in Advanced Materials, and is featured as a frontispiece reserved for highlighting outstanding communications.
