Silicon telluride nanoribbons

Researchers from Brown University in the US have developed a way to make nanoribbons and nanoplates from silicon telluride. The resulting materials are pure p-type semiconductors that have the potential to be used in a variety of electronic and optical devices. The team also notes the layered structure of the nanoribbons could allow them to take up lithium and magnesium, meaning they could be used to make electrodes for batteries.
