Unusually long and aligned ‘buckytubes’ grown at Duke
April 25, 2003 | Source: EurekaAlert
Duke University chemists have developed a method of growing nanotubes 100 times longer than usual (4 mm.), while maintaining straightness with controllable orientation and cross-connecting nanotube grids. The achievement solves a major barrier to nanotubes’ use in ultra-small nanoelectronic devices.
