New Molecular Self-Assembly Technique May Mimic How Cells Assemble Themselves

February 26, 2003 | Source: ScienceDaily

Researchers have created tree-like molecules that assemble themselves into precisely structured building blocks of a quarter-million atoms. Such building blocks may be precursors to designing nanostructures for molecular electronics or photonics materials, which “steer” light in the same way computer chips steer electrons.
