Researchers create predictable patterns from unpredictable carbon nanotubes

14.02. 2018 Nanotechnology News - Nanoscience, Nanotechnolgy, Nanotech News

Integrating nanoscale fibers such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into commercial applications, from coatings for aircraft wings to heat sinks for mobile computing, requires them to be produced in large scale and at low cost. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a promising approach to manufacture CNTs in the needed scales, but it produces CNTs that are too sparse and compliant for most applications.

Micromotors made easy
