Nanowires could be LEDs of the future(SciTech)

Nanowires are about 2 micrometres high and 10-500 nanometres in diameter. Light Emitting Diodes made from nanowires would use less energy and provide better light, scientists have found. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute in Denmark studied nanowires using X-ray microscopy and were able to pinpoint exactly how the nanowire
