Zinc Oxide Nanowire Lasers Triple DVD Storage, Kill Bad Cells, Purify Water

A team of researchers at the Bourns College of Engineering at the University of California, Riverside has made a breakthrough in zinc oxide nanowire waveguide lasers. Zinc oxide nanowire lasers could be used to read and process much denser data on storage media. With zinc oxide, a DVD could store four to six hours of music instead of two hours. The research findings have been published in the July issue of Nature Nanotechnology.
