Developer of 'nanonets' snares National Science Foundation Career Award
Date:1/10/2011

earch team grew the nano-scale wires from titanium and silicon in a two-dimensional network of branches that resemble flat, rectangular netting.

To create the material, the researchers conquered a longstanding engineering challenge in nanotechnology: creating a material that is extremely thin yet maintains its complexity, and offers a structural design large or long enough to efficiently transfer an electrical charge.

The Nanonet's combination of improved structure and the use of highly conductive titanium disilicide has proven useful in water splitting, where the metallic catalyst starts a reaction using sunlight and water that effectively separates hydrogen and oxygen, allowing the harvesting of hydrogen gas for fuel.

"We want to take water splitting to the next level," said Wang. "We have made some exciting progress and this grant will allow us to continue that work to better understand the material and the process to extract hydrogen from water more efficiently and at lower cost."
