About the Image

Nanotechnology promises to revolutionize industry, energy, medicine and science with products and technologies from everyday consumer goods to sophisticated electronics and biomaterials. Nanotechnology is among the University of Nebraska‚ÄíLincoln's research strengths. From nanomagnetism and spintronics to laser-assisted nanomaterials and nanohybrids, our faculty are turning nanotechnology's potential into reality. The cover features illustrations of a carbon nano-onion and carbon nanotubes. UNL electrical engineer Yongfeng Lu uses lasers to produce these and other precision nanostructures. Read more.
