Macroscopic, Neat, Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Fibers
Well-aligned macroscopic fibers composed solely of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were produced by conventional spinning. Fuming sulfuric acid charges SWNTs and promotes their ordering intoExpand

Crystal Structures, Phase Transitions and Energy Calculations of Poly(p-phenylene) Oligomers
The room temperature crystal structures, unit cell dimensions at 110K and phase transitions of three poly(p-phenylene) oligomers are reported. The structures of p-quinquephenyl (PQP),Expand

True solutions of single-walled carbon nanotubes for assembly into macroscopic materials.
Translating the unique characteristics of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes into macroscopic materials such as fibres and sheets has been hindered by ineffective assembly. Fluid-phaseExpand

Abstract In this review, we show that the structure and behavior of single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) are essentially polymeric; in fact, many have referred to SWNTs as “the ultimate polymer”. TheExpand

Dissolution of Pristine Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes in Superacids by Direct Protonation
Strong tube−tube van der Waal attractions that hinder the dissolution of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) as individuals have been overcome by the direct protonation of the tubes by superacids.Expand

Phase Behavior and Rheology of SWNTs in Superacids
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) can be dispersed at high concentration in superacids; the protonation of SWNTs sidewalls eliminates wall-wall van der Waals interactions and promotes theExpand

Electrically Driven Single-Cell Photonic Crystal Laser
disk also displays a prominent inner warp (5, 19), with a 3° to 4° tilt relative to the outer disk. Such a strong warp is not seen in the AU Mic disk, although its detectability would depend on itsExpand

Molecular Packing and Crystalline Order in Polybenzobisoxazole and Polybenzobisthiazole Fibers
The structures of poly(p-phenylenebenzobisthiazole) (PBZT) and poly(p-phenylenebenzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers have been investigated by fiber diffraction techniques. d-spacings were obtained fromExpand

Molecular dynamics simulations of a poly(p‐phenylene) oligomer
We have studied the conformation and coefficient of thermal expansion in the poly (p-phenylene) oligomer p-sexiphenyl (C 36 H 26 ) by molecular dynamics simulations. Studies of the backboneExpand

Electrically switchable volume gratings in polymer‐dispersed liquid crystals
We report electrical switching of the diffraction efficiency in volume Bragg gratings written holographically in polymer‐dispersed liquid crystals (PDLCs). Scanning electron microscopy confirms theExpand
