These crystalline 'nanoflowers' were developed by Cambridge University PhD student Ghim Wei Ho. The nanostructures of silicon carbide are grown from droplets of gallium on a silicon surface. These nanoflowers will be used in new applications, such as water repellant coatings or new types of solar cells. Next valentine's day, send your lover some nanoflowers.They look beautiful under the scanning microscope.
