We describe a clean method of graphene nanoribbon (GNR) extraction from multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), performed in a high vacuum, nonchemical environment. Electrical current and nanomanipulation are used to unwrap a portion of the MWNT and thus produce a GNR of desired width and length. The unwrapping method allows GNRs to be concurrently characterized structurally via high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and evaluated for electrical transport, including situations for… CONTINUE READING
