We report a method for tuning the distribution of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) produced by the anodic arc production method via the application of nonuniform magnetic fields to the gap region during synthesis. Raman, ultraviolet-visible-near-infrared absorbance and near-infrared fluorescence spectroscopies were used to characterize samples together(More)
Advanced technological uses of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) rely on the production of single length and chirality populations that are currently only available through liquid-phase post processing. The foundation of all of these processing steps is the attainment of individualized nanotube dispersions in solution. An understanding of the(More)
The nonlinear elasticity of thin supported membranes assembled from length purified single-wall carbon nanotubes is analyzed through the wrinkling instability that develops under uniaxial compression. In contrast with thin polymer films, pristine nanotube membranes exhibit strong softening under finite strain associated with bond slip and network fracture.(More)
Numerical simulations of phase decomposition in thin films on patterned substrates are presented for a binary alloy in order to study the influence of substrate composition on microstructural evolution. For systems with a substrate composition less than the film composition, a preferential segregation of A to the interface was observed and no phase(More)
The coupling between mechanical flexibility and electronic performance is evaluated for thin films of metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) deposited on compliant supports. Percolated networks of type-purified SWCNTs are assembled as thin conducting coatings on elastic polymer substrates, and the sheet resistance is measured as a(More)
We investigate the dynamics of monodisperse colloidal polystyrene particles suspended in solutions of the semiflexible polymer filamentous actin, over a range of filament lengths that either exceed or are substantially less than the particle radius. The filament length is controlled by the capping protein gelsolin, and particle surface chemistries that(More)
The separation of empty and water-filled laser ablation and electric arc synthesized nanotubes is reported. Centrifugation of these large-diameter nanotubes dispersed with sodium deoxycholate using specific conditions produces isolated bands of empty and water-filled nanotubes without significant diameter selection. This separation is shown to be consistent(More)
We present the behavior of depletion-induced gels for vesicle-polymer mixtures when the ratio of the polymer radius of gyration to the mean vesicle radius is 0.09 and 0.27. As the polymer concentration increases, density gradients build up and an interface is developed between a highly turbid vesicle-rich phase and a polymer-rich phase. Increasing the(More)
