Powder with the power to transform the world

Abstract:
In his Canberra laboratory, research physicist Dr Ying Chen churns what looks like nothing more than dull, grey powder. But far more precious than gold, the powder, says Dr Chen, will change the world. He believes it will open the way for making everything from hydrogen-powered cars and the next generation of jetliners to wafer-thin televisions and powerful computers so small you can slip them into your pocket. And, he says, the energy-efficient technology will help curb the world's craving for power. Chen's laboratory is the world's only commercial source of nanotubes of boron nitride (BN).
