Optical technique explores nanotube chirality
Scientists at Nagoya University, Japan, have used micro-photocurrent (µ-PC) spectroscopy to investigate the chirality of a single-walled carbon nanotube in a field-effect transistor (FET). Chirality can affect a nanotube’s density of states, band gap and other electronic properties.
