World's longest nanotube developed! (webindia123.com)
- In a breakthrough discovery the scientists at the at The Henry Samueli School of Engineering have successfully synthesized the world's longest electrically conducting nanotubes.
The tubes which are 10 times longer than previous current-carrying nanotubes, could be crucial for supercomputer and health care applications as they may lead to the development of extremely strong, lightweight materials and ultradense nano-memory arrays for extremely powerful computers, ultralow-loss power transmission lines, and nano-biosensors for use in health care applications.
... "We are extremely excited about this discovery," said (assistant professor Peter) Burke. More here
