Nanoparticle performance - solving a sticky problem

Nanoparticles can be as small as ten atoms in diameter, and their small size makes them especially susceptible to coarsening with continued use, which reduces functionality and degrades performance. A new NSF Grant will advance the understanding of micro- and nano-surfaces and to engineer more stable nanoparticles.
