A Nano-Window That Repels Dirt and Grime


Nanosized “forest of peptides” can be used as the basis for self-cleaning windows and more efficient batteries.

A coating on windows or solar panels that repels grime and dirt? Expanded battery storage capacities for the next electric car? New Tel Aviv University research, just published in Nature Nanotechnology, details a breakthrough in assembling peptides at the nano-scale level that could make these futuristic visions come true in just a few years.
