Rice University lab's nanoreactor theory could advance quality of material's growth

2012-01-30 10:44:54

The Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, has experimentally confirmed a theory by Rice University Professor Boris Yakobson that foretold a pair of interesting properties about nanotube growth: That the chirality of a nanotube controls the speed of its growth, and that armchair nanotubes should grow the fastest.

Graphene Rips Follow Rules

Graphane is the material of choice for physicists on the cutting edge of materials science, and Rice University researchers are right there with the pack – and perhaps a little ahead.

New video showing the atom-by-atom growth of carbon nanotubes reveals they rotate as they grow, much like the halting motion of a mechanical clock's second hand.


Word of the Day
scriggle
  • To writhe; struggle or twist about with more or less force; wriggle.
  • To scribble, jot.
The word 'scriggle' is likely an alteration of 'wiggle'.
