Video: Nano-infused paint can detect strain

By / June 25, 2012

According to a release from Rice University scientists and students in a research group call their mixture “strain paint” and are hopeful it can help detect deformations in structures such as buildings, bridges and airplane wings. Their study, published online this month in Nano Letters details a composite coating they invented—containing dilute individualized single-walled carbon nanotubes…

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…

Putting a Wrapper on Nanotubes Increases Luminescence

By / April 9, 2009

A UConn team from the school’s Nanomaterials Optoelectronics Laboratory at the Institute of Materials Science has discovered a nifty way to increase the photoluminescence of single-walled carbon nanotubes by wrapping the tubes with a sleeve made from a Vitamin B2 analog.
