Nanowire

 

A nanometer-scale wire made of metal atoms, silicon, or other materials that conduct electricity. Nanowires are built atom by atom on a solid surface, often as part of a microfluidic device. They can be coated with molecules such as antibodies that will bind to proteins and other substances of interest to researchers and clinicians. By the very nature of their nanoscale size, nanowires are incredibly sensitive to such binding events and respond by altering the electrical current flowing through them, and thus can form the basis of ultra sensitive molecular detectors.

Conducting or semiconducting nanofibre, used as a building block in nanoscale devices. Striped or 'superlatticed' nanowires can function as transistors, leds (light-emitting diodes) and other optoelectronic devices, biochemical sensors, heat-pumping thermoelectric devices, or all of the above, along the same length of wire.

A wire made from nanotubes. A nanowire allows a much lower current to flow compared to metal wire. See nanotube.
