Significant progress in carbon nanotube research

Researchers from Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO) and Stanford University found an improved method to crosslink carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes have high thermal conductivity, absorption, tensile strength and elasticity. These properties make carbon nanotubes very useful in nanotechnology, semiconductors, and optics. Because these three fields are increasingly important Read more…
