Super-tough carbon-nanotube fibres
This work spins 100-metre-long carbon-nanotube composite fibres that are tougher than any natural or synthetic organic fibre described so far, and uses these to make fibre supercapacitors that are suitable for weaving into textiles.
Crystalline Ropes of Metallic Carbon Nanotubes
X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy showed that fullerene single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs) are nearly uniform in diameter and that they self-organize into “ropes,” which consist of 100 to 500 SWNTs in a two-dimensional triangular lattice with a lattice constant of 17 angstroms.
The following is a fundamental reading list for doctoral candidates to use as a guide in preparing for their comprehensive examination in the field of Modernism. A student is expected to have read
