ORNL simulations explain unexpected DNA-nanotube flow

By / February 23, 2010

Via press release, researchers at Oak Ridge National Lab working toward a low-cost DNA sequencing tool for medical diagnostics have proposed using a single-walled carbon nanotube to thread a single strand of DNA from one reservoir to another, analyzing and sequencing the DNA in the process. In such a device, the negatively charged DNA material,…

Nanotube properties manipulated by catalyst composition

By / October 16, 2009

Researchers know that single‐walled carbon nanotubes have a lot of potential in the world of electronics. Besides being cheap to produce, it’s been show that SWNTs can be produced that have an enormous variety of functions and behaviors (chirality). Nanotubes can be formed by “rolling” sheets of graphene. The actual process can involve using a…
