Order of Magnitude Increase for Carbon Nanotube Length

September 20, 2004 | Source: KurzweilAI

Los Alamos National Laboratory and Duke University chemists have grown a world-record-length four-centimeter-long, single-wall carbon nanotube.

It was made using catalytic chemical vapor deposition from ethanol vapor, and is significantly larger than previous maximum lengths of just a few millimeters.
