Thin Polymer Film Grown on a Single Layer of Graphene Effectively Transports Electric Charges

Graphene – a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon with highly desirable electrical properties, flexibility and strength – shows great promise for future electronics, advanced solar cells, protective coatings and other uses, and combining it with other materials could extend its range even further. [More]
Novel Method to Develop Graphenated-Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced FEE Properties

Novel Method to Develop Graphenated-Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced FEE Properties

Enhancing the electron emission of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) is key for applications ranging from cold cathodes used in high-resolution electron microscopes to portable X-ray imaging systems. In a paper recently published in Nanotechnology, a team led by Professor My Ali El Khakani, from the Energie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre of INRS (INRS-EMT), has reported an original approach for the development of novel graphenated-MWCNTs with enhanced field electron emission (FEE) properties.

Researchers Observe Real-Time Deformation Data of Carbon Nanocoils Under Axial Loading

Carbon nanocoils (CNCs) composed of helical shaped carbon nanofibers have potential applications including mechanical springs and nano-solenoids. There are some reports which measure the spring constant of CNCs. [More]
New Method to Measure Conformation of Single Molecule “Wiring”

New Method to Measure Conformation of Single Molecule “Wiring”

It’s nearly 50 years since Gordon Moore predicted that the density of transistors on an integrated circuit would double every two years. “Moore’s Law” has turned out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy that technologists pushed to meet, but to continue into the future, engineers will have to make radical changes to the structure or composition of circuits. One potential way to achieve this is to develop devices based on single-molecule connections. [More]
