Clean carbon nanotubes with superb properties

Eurekalert  November 19, 2019 An international team of researchers (Finland, USA – Rice University, Japan) has developed a new method to fabricate single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT). They used aerosols of metal catalysts and gasses containing carbon which allows the researchers to carefully control the nanotube structure directly. The devices do not contain degrading processing chemicals on their surface. The method makes it possible to fabricate hundreds of individual carbon nanotube devices within 3 hours as opposed to the current method. They have shown that the aerosol-based nanotubes are superb in terms of their electronic quality. These clean devices help to […]
