Latest Junichiro Kono Stories
Graphene may be tough, but those who handle it had better be tender. The environment surrounding the atom-thick carbon material can influence its electronic performance.
Researchers at Rice University are using carbon nanotubes as the critical component of a robust terahertz polarizer that could accelerate the development of new security and communication devices, sensors and non-invasive medical imaging systems as well as fundamental studies of low-dimensional condensed matter systems.
In a flash, the world changed for Tim Noe – and for physicists who study what they call many-body problems.
Rice University researchers have figured out what gives armchair nanotubes their unique bright colors: hydrogen-like objects called excitons.
Rice physicist Junichiro Kono and his team have been studying the Aharonov-Bohm effect -- the interaction between electrically charged particles and magnetic fields -- and how it relates to carbon nanotubes.
In two new papers, Rice University researchers report using ultracentrifugation (UCF) to create highly purified samples of carbon nanotube species.
Rice lab makes solid material transparent to terahertz waves.
