  • Study Emphasizes Importance of Clean Carbon Nanotubes to Maximize Their Usefulness

    AZO Nano , 5th Jan 2018

    According to researchers at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University in partnership with researchers at Rice University, carbon nanotubes bound for electronics have to be as clean as possible to maximize their usefulness in next-generation nanoscale devices, and contact effects may restrict how tiny a nano device can be.

  • Can Carbon Nanotube Devices be TOO Nano?

    Controlled Environments , 4th Jan 2018

    Carbon nanotubes bound for electronics not only need to be as clean as possible to maximize their utility in next-generation nanoscale devices, but contact effects may limit how small a nano device can be, according to researchers at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University in collaboration with researchers at Rice University.

  • Touchy nanotubes work better when clean

    Nanotechnology Now , 4th Jan 2018

    Rice chemist Andrew Barron, also a professor at Swansea in the United Kingdom, and his team have figured out how to get nanotubes clean and in the process discovered why the electrical properties of nanotubes have historically been so difficult to measure.

  • Carbon Nanotubes Devices May Have a Limit to How 'Nano' They Can Be

    R&D , 3rd Jan 2018

    ESRI Director Andrew Barron, also a professor at Rice University in the USA, and his team have figured out how to get nanotubes clean enough to obtain reproducible electronic measurements and in the process not only explained why the electrical properties of nanotubes have historically been so difficult to measure consistently, but have shown that there may be a limit to how "nano" future electronic devices can be using carbon nanotubes.
