About the Cover

Zoom in on nanoscience

The ORNL Review is also available in PDF format

Volume 45, Number 1, 2012 - Igniting Industry This issue of the Review highlights nanoscience research projects from areas across the laboratory's science and technology agenda, illustrating the benefits of our multidisciplinary, multi-institutional approach. The front cover shows a scanning probe micrograph of patterns written in a sample of bismuth ferrite. Research into this material by the Imaging Functionality Group at ORNL's Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences could have implications for future electronics and energy-harvesting materials.
