These 'nanodumbbells', which are shaped like mini-weightlifting bars, will apparently solve two nanotechnological problems: assembling billions of nanocrystals into a single integrated electrical circuit; and provide good electrical contact. And they will be used to create self-assembling chain structures of nanocrystals. This overview provides other details, pictures and references about this project.
[Additional note, totally unrelated to the content: there was not a single reference to 'nanodumbbells' by Google when I was typing this yesterday. Today, Google is finding six links.]
