A Conveyor Belt for the Nano-Age

Abstract:
In a development that brings the promise of mass production to nanoscale devices, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have transformed carbon nanotubes into conveyor belts capable of ferrying atom-sized particles to microscopic worksites. By applying a small electrical current to a carbon nanotube, they moved indium particles along the tube like auto parts on an assembly line. (more on earlier article)
