Purdue researchers build made-to-order nanotubes
News & Analysis  
10/23/2002   Post a comment
Using a more complex system of atoms than carbon nanotubes, scientists at Purdue University have devised a tunable approach to nanotube creation that allows them to build application-specific varieties.
Study reveals nanoscale structure in amorphous material
News & Analysis

The common view that amorphous materials are simply jumbled collections of atoms may give way to a more ordered theory of the materials' formation, according to experiments conducted at the University of North Carolina.
Nanotube welding eyed for ultradense circuits
News & Analysis  
10/2/2002   Post a comment
An international consortium of researchers believes its electron-beam method for joining nanotubes could be applied to the construction of ultradense circuits. Rather than add a "glue" material between nanotubes, the electron beam knocks out atoms from between touching nanotubes. The tubes heal the defect by sharing an atom and thereby create a weld between them.
