Carbon Nanotubes Overview

| August 20, 2010

Carbon nanotubes, also known as buckytubes, are allotropes of carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure. Nanotubes have been constructed with length-to-diameter ratio of up to 132,000,000:1 which is significantly larger than any other material. These cylindrical carbon molecules have novel properties that make them potentially useful in many applications in nanotechnology, electronics, optics, and other fields [...]
