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.

[flash /ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/wrapped_nanotube.flv mode=1 f={image=/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/wrapped_nanotube.jpg}] A team from UConn’s Nanomaterials Optoelectronics Lab 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. The wrapping prevents defects caused by oxygen and renders them much more…
