From KurzweilAI.net — Nanonets made of silicon and titanium wires crank up the surface area and improve electronics and energy usage and apps.

Scientists Grow ‘Nanonets’ Able To Snare Added Energy Transfer
ScienceDaily, Sep. 3, 2008

Boston College chemists have produced nanonets, a flexible webbing of self-assembling nanoscale titanium and silicon wires that multiplies surface area, critical to improving the performance of the wires in electronics and energy applications.

Test shows improved performance in the material’s ability to conduct electricity and ability to absorb light across a wide range of the solar spectrum.
