Here we construct mechanically flexible and optically transparent thin film solid state supercapacitors by assembling nano-engineered carbon electrodes, prepared in porous templates, with morphology of interconnected arrays of complex shapes and porosity. The highly textured graphitic films act as electrode and current collector and integrated with solid… (More)
Aerogels have numerous applications due to their high surface area and low densities. However, creating aerogels from a large variety of materials has remained an outstanding challenge. Here, we report a new methodology to enable aerogel production with a wide range of materials. The method is based on the assembly of anisotropic nano-objects… (More)
Here we report direct observations of spatial movements of nanodroplets of Pb metal trapped inside sealed carbon nanocontainers. We find drastic changes in the mobility of the liquid droplets as the particle size increases from a few to a few ten nanometers. In open containers the droplet becomes immobile and readily evaporates to the vacuum environment.… (More)
A case of a primary retroperitoneal mucinous cystadenocarcinoma in a 38-year-old female is presented. The literature concerning primary retroperitoneal cystadenocarcinomas is reviewed and it is concluded that close postoperative follow-up is necessary.
Suspended single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) offer unique functionalities for electronic and electromechanical systems. Due to their outstanding flexible nature, suspended SWCNT architectures have great potential for integration into flexible electronic systems. However, current techniques for integrating SWCNT architectures with flexible substrates… (More)
The authors regret that previous work reporting the production of aerogels from nanotubes was not properly acknowledged and cited in our paper. These references appear below 1–3. Reference 1 was referenced in the published paper (reference 29), but was only cited to compare the aerogel properties instead of acknowledging what has already been studied.
