Nanotech could power future magnets: background on nanocrystalline magnetic materials and how they lead to more powerful permanent magnets for things like more efficient motors and levitated trains.  10:28:27 PM  permalink  

Progress on cheap plastic solar cells, using self-assembly of nanorods a dozen atoms long.  One use could be clothing (for charging personal electronics).  Efficiency is only 1.7%, with improvements expected leading to commercialization predicted in 3 years.  Company is NanoSys, located in Palo Alto.
