  • Carbon nanotubes can be thought of as graphitic sheets with a hexagonal lattice that have been wrapped up into a seamless cylinder. Since their discovery in 1991, the peculiar electronic properties of these structures have attracted much attention. Their electronic conductivity, for example, has been predicted to depend sensitively on tube diameter and wrapping angle (a measure of the helicity of the tube lattice), with only slight differences in these parameters causing a shift from a metallic… CONTINUE READING
