Teasing Apart Nanotubes: Fast-spun carbon fibers may feed an industry

10:06am, October 11, 2006

Nanoscale tubes of carbon could potentially lead to novel technologies, such as electronic circuits that are much faster and more compact than those made today. However, the batches of carbon nanotubes that manufacturers now produce are difficult to use because they contain a hodgepodge of tubes of varying electronic properties and diameters.
