  By  <a href="">Lynn Yarris</a> -<br><br><a href="">The days of self-assembling nanoparticles taking hours to form a film over a microscopic-sized wafer are over. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have devised a technique whereby self-assembling nanoparticle arrays can form a highly ordered thin film over macroscopic distances in one minute.</a><br><br><a href="">READ MORE ON BERKELEY LAB</a>
