Researchers take first pictures of baby nanotubes

Single-walled carbon nanotubes are loaded with desirable properties. In particular, the ability to conduct electricity at high rates of speed makes them attractive for use as nanoscale transistors. But this and other properties ...

Move over, silicon, there's a new circuit in town

(Phys.org) —When it comes to electronics, silicon will now have to share the spotlight. In a paper recently published in Nature Communications, researchers from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering describe how they have ...

Research boosts understanding of nano-carbon in photodetectors

As modern electronic devices get ever smaller, the age of silicon transistors is going by the wayside. Tomorrow's electronics—such as photovoltaic panels, transparent conductors, capacitors, transistors and photodetectors—are ...
