Nanotube Forms Drive Shaft

Abstract:
A researcher from the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering in Singapore has fashioned a drive shaft that is 1,000 times narrower than a human hair. The component could someday be used in machines that are smaller than bacteria. The researcher found that briefly focusing an electron beam on a section of a multiwall carbon nanotube caused the section to widen.
