Engineers Show How To Optimize Carbon Nanotube Arrays For Use In Hot Spots
2013-12-03 13:11:10

Stanford School of Engineering Experimental evidence and computer simulations suggest how to grow structures with the best trade offs between 3 desired characteristics: strength, flexibility and the ability to dissipate heat When engineers design devices, they must often join together two materials that expand and contract at different rates as temperatures change. Such thermal differences can cause problems if, for instance, a semiconductor chip is plugged into a socket that can't...

University of Illinois researchers have developed a way to heal gaps in wires too small for even the world’s tiniest soldering iron. Led by electrical and computer engineering professor Joseph Lyding and graduate student Jae Won Do, the Illinois team published its results in the journal Nano Letters. Carbon nanotubes are like tiny hollow wires of carbon just 1 atom thick – similar to graphene but cylindrical. Researchers have been exploring using them as transistors instead of...

Researchers Develop Technique For Imaging Individual Carbon Nanotubes
2013-11-13 07:50:55

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Despite their almost incomprehensibly small size – a diameter about one ten-thousandth the thickness of a human hair – single-walled carbon nanotubes come in a plethora of different “species,” each with its own structure and unique combination of electronic and optical properties. Characterizing the structure and properties of an individual carbon nanotube has involved a lot of guesswork – until now. Researchers with the U.S. Department of...

Researchers Unveil Carbon Nanotube Jungles To Better Detect Molecules
2013-11-06 13:12:01

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich have developed a new method of using nanotubes to detect molecules at extremely low concentrations enabling trace detection of biological threats, explosives and drugs. The joint research team, led by LLNL Engineer Tiziana Bond and ETH Scientist Hyung Gyu Park, are using spaghetti-like, gold-hafnium-coated carbon nanotubes...

Carbon Nanotube Forests Have Low Stiffness Due To Waviness
2013-10-01 12:05:01

Georgia Institute of Technology A new study has found that "waviness" in forests of vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes dramatically reduces their stiffness, answering a long-standing question surrounding the tiny structures. Instead of being a detriment, the waviness may make the nanotube arrays more compliant and therefore useful as thermal interface material for conducting heat away from future high-powered integrated circuits. Measurements of nanotube stiffness, which is...

Carbon Nanotube Computer Could One Day Replace Modern Computers
2013-09-26 04:50:46

redOrbit Staff & Stanford Reports - Your Universe Online Stanford engineers have built the world’s first carbon nanotube computer, validating the concept of carbon nanotubes as a potential replacement for the conventional silicon chips used in modern electronic devices. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are semiconductor material comprised of tens of thousands of tiny tube-like structures that can fit inside a human hair.
