Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) [1, 2] have dimensions similar to those of typical polymeric chains, with 1-50nm in diameter and 1-10µm in length. Experimental results on individual carbon nanotubes and nanotube bundles show that they have exceptional electrical and mechanical properties with an elastic modulus of ~1TPa and fracture strain of 5-10%. [3] The thermal(More)
X-ray radiation is widely used in medical and industrial applications. The basic design of the x-ray tube has not changed significantly in the last century. In this paper, we demonstrate that medical diagnostic x-ray radiation can be generated using a carbon nanotube (CNT) based field-emission cathode. The device can readily produce both continuous and(More)
the filter were measured using condensation particle counters (TSI Inc. model 3022A). Submicrometer particles entering the counters are grown into micrometer sized droplets by condensation of a supersatu-rated vapor of 1-butanol onto the particles, then counted by laser light scattering. The particle concentrations were averaged over ten measurements at(More)
The effects of structure and morphology on lithium storage in single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) bundles were studied by electrochemistry and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. SWNTs were chemically etched to variable lengths and were intercalated with Li. The reversible Li storage capacity increased from LiC(6) in close-end SWNTs to LiC(3) after(More)
