Latest Carbon nanotube Stories
Single-sheet graphene dispersion when substantially spaced apart in liquid cells or solid film matrices can exhibit novel excited state absorption mechanism that can provide highly effective broadband optical limiting well below the onset of microbubble or microplasma formation.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued the world's first reference material for single-wall carbon nanotube soot.
The surprising discovery of a new way to tune and enhance thermal conductivity – a basic property generally considered to be fixed for a given material – gives engineers a new tool for managing thermal effects in smart phones and computers, lasers and a number of other powered devices.
Imprinting electronic circuitry on backplanes that are both flexible and stretchable promises to revolutionize a number of industries and make “smart devices” nearly ubiquitous.
The Inorganic and Organic Chemistry Sciences are two of the key sections in the Sciences Social Network Sciencia.org.
Since the invention of liquid crystal displays in the mid-1960s, display electronics have undergone rapid transformation.
Researchers from the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) have discovered electronic stripes, called 'charge density waves', on the surface of the graphene sheets that make up a graphitic superconductor.
Although they found that graphene makes very good chemical sensors, researchers at Illinois have discovered an unexpected “twist”—that the sensors are better when the graphene is “worse”—more imperfections improved performance.
