Injectable Nanotube Sensing Technology Could Continuously Analyze Blood Glucose

Injectable Nanotube Sensing Technology Could Continuously Analyze Blood Glucose

What if a diabetic never had to prick a finger to monitor his or her blood-glucose levels, and instead could rely on an internal, nanoscale device to analyze blood continuously and transmit readings to a hand-held scanner?

NASA Develop Spherical Occulter using Super-Black Carbon-Nanotube Coating to Study the Sun’s Corona

NASA Develop Spherical Occulter using Super-Black Carbon-Nanotube Coating to Study the Sun’s Corona

A team of NASA scientists are working on the development of an occulter, which blocks light from the sun, for use in a CubeSat mission to measure the sun's coronal mass ejections. To assist in the production of the occulter the researchers have been using carbon nanotubes to achieve the full absorption of light
