Liquid crystals make nanotubes line up

Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Manchester, UK, and the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment (ENEA) have dispersed single- and multi-walled nanotubes in liquid crystals in order to control the alignment of the tubes. The liquid crystal-nanotube dispersions could have applications in externally controlled nanotube switches or in sensor devices.
