Research team sorts nanotubes electronically
A breakthrough in a joint carbon-nanotube research project, in which carbon nanotubes are chemically sorted based on their electronic properties, may bring electronic applications of nanostructures a step closer. Creating carbon nanotubes is a fairly easy process, but researchers have been stymied by an inability to sort them out. While geometrically identical, nanotubes come in a many types, based on the spiral structure of their walls, known as chirality.
