‘Cloning’ could make structurally pure nanotubes for nanoelectronics

By Eileen De Guire / November 16, 2012

In this computer model, small, pre-selected nanotube “seeds” (yellow) are grown to long nanotubes of the same twist or “chirality” in a high-temperature gas of small carbon compounds.

Reproduction by cloning eliminates variation, and materials…
