World's Strongest Nanowire Made by International Team

Associate Professor John Sader from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne has been part of an international team who have made the world's strongest nanowire, reaching the theoretical limits of what they'd planned to build.

The nanowire, which is about 1000 times thinner than a human hair, is so strong it could support 16 African elephants if it was scaled up to the size of a child's finger, says Sader.
