(a) 3D structure consisting of TMC nanofibers surrounded by single-atom rows of a bridging element. (b) End-on and side view of a single TMC nanofiber. Chalcogens are yellow, transition metals are green, and bridging element is purple.

In recent years a great deal of research has gone into creating revolutionary nanomaterials capable of self-assembling into a wide range of dimensional structures at an atomic level.

Transition metal chalcogenide (TMC) nanofibers are structures consisting of transition metal atoms such as tungsten, compounded by an element from the oxygen family on the periodic table (like sulfur or tellurium)...
