Some exciting information for carbon nanotube fans: Scientists at Rice and Swansea universities have formulated a method to utilize low-cost newsprint extracted from newspapers to grow nanotubes for the industry.
A study conducted by scientists at Rice University in collaboration with scientists at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University has shown that single-walled carbon nanotubes can be grown extensively on old newspapers, which is a cheap, environmentally-friendly material.
Researchers at Nagoya University in Japan have developed a novel and more cost-effective technique that allows easy and effective separation of two types of carbon nanotubes.
Labtech International has been appointed as the UK and Ireland distributor of Protochips C-flats™ - premium, ultra-flat holey carbon support films perfectly suited for cryo-EM and cryo-electron tomography.
A new study has confirmed that thin and flexible fibers composed of carbon nanotubes can bridge damaged heart tissues and provide the electrical signals required to keep those hearts beating.
Researchers from Laboratory of Nanomaterials, Skoltech, have come up with a neural-network-based technique for tracking the development of carbon nanotube, leading to a new generation of advanced electronic devices. The findings have been reported in Carbon.
Carbon nanotubes, designed into self-standing novel materials through certain chemical alterations, are capable of modulating the activity of nerve cells. These materials could possibly be exploited for repairing damaged nerve tissues.
A circle can be said to be less stable than a jagged loop, but this would be true apparently when one is referring to carbon nanotubes.
Researchers from the Skoltech Center for Photonics and Quantum Materials (CPQM) have formulated a novel technique to fine-tune the optoelectrical properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) by applying an aerosolized dopant solution onto their surface, and as a result, paving the way for new SWCNT applications in optoelectronics.
Imagine the amount of data that can be collected through a sensor that is sufficiently small to interact with and penetrate individual cells.
