Abstract:
Song Jin is intrigued by carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanowires because of their chemical diversity and flexibility. Silicon, while better for some applications, especially lithography in size-reducing technologies, is not as good as nanostructures for other applications -- cheap processing and chemical flexibility. Nanotechnologists should design for the areas that silicon cannot "reach."
