Nanotechnology: Dreams of a hollow future

Abstract:
Carbon nanotubes have become familiar components in nanotechnology. Nanotubes made from inorganic materials are now on the rise, the latest creation being nanoscale tubes of a complex manganese oxide. Fabricating small structures has long been fashionable in physics. The rationale is that reducing one or more dimensions of a system below some key length scale can change the system's behaviour - carbon nanotubes are a good example. But nanotubes made from other materials are also proving useful for technological applications.
