Carbon nanotubes break small record

Abstract:
Researchers from Meijo University in Japan and Research Centre Jülich in Germany have made what they say is the smallest stable carbon nanotube. The tube, just 3 Angstroms in diameter, grew inside a multiwalled carbon nanotube during a hydrogen arc discharge process. “This breaks the theoretical limit of 4 Angstroms, and reaches their [the tubes’] minimum structural limit,” Xinluo Zhao of Meijo University told nanotechweb.org.
