Tiny carbon nanotube pores make big impact
A team led by the Lawrence Livermore scientists has created a new kind of ion channel based on short carbon nanotubes, which can be inserted into synthetic bilayers and live cell membranes to form tiny pores ...
Graphene / nanotube hybrid benefits flexible solar cells
(Phys.org) —Rice University scientists have invented a novel cathode that may make cheap, flexible dye-sensitized solar cells practical.
Better bomb-sniffing technology with new detector material
University of Utah engineers have developed a new type of carbon nanotube material for handheld sensors that will be quicker and better at sniffing out explosives, deadly gases and illegal drugs.
Nanotubes could serve as 'universal scaffolding' for cell membrane channels
A study, in which the Membrane Nanomechanics group led by the Ikerbasque lecturer Dr. Vadim Frolov at the Biophysics Unit of the University of the Basque Country has participated, suggests that single-wall carbon nanotubes ...
