Core technology springs from nanoscale rods

(Rice University) Rice University scientists have demonstrated a method for reversibly changing the light emitted from metallic nanorods by moving atoms from one place to another inside the particles. The discovery could lead to a new type of multistate memory, as well as reconfigurable sensors and catalysts.
