In a project at SINTEF we developed a method to produce 3-d imensional nanostructures of silicon and aluminum, particles, nano-wires and nano-tunnels, using a self-organizing process. These structures can potentially be used in solar cells, sensors, batteries, and thermoelectric elements that generate electrical power by heat.
