Description

Carbon nanotubes are the subject of intense scientific interest for advanced applications such as biological sensors and flexible conductive coatings because of their remarkable strength and electrical properties. Developing and selecting nanotubes for these advanced applications will require the specific knowledge and demonstration of achievable properties beyond the theoretical predictions. In our recent efforts, we and others have made progress towards isolating single length and diameter populations of nanotubes. In this project, we will pursue continued advancement of the separation technology and the optical characterization through multiple metrologies.
