To Make Optically Active Structures, Nanotechniques Are Used

The study explains that researchers have advanced a first-of-its-kind technique for creating entirely new classes of optical materials and devices that could lead to light bending and cloaking devices news to make the ears of Star Trek's Spock perk up. Using DNA as a key tool, the scientists took gold nanoparticles of different sizes and shapes and arranged them in two and three dimensions to form optically active superlattices. The study was published in the journal Science today.
