Researchers Announce Nanotube Breakthrough

A research project funded by Arrowhead Research Corporation has resulted in a breakthrough in carbon nanotube technology. The California Institute of Technology has filed for patent protection on the invention, and Arrowhead has the right to obtain an exclusive license from Caltech. In an article published in Nano Letters, a team of researchers at Caltech led by Dr. C. Patrick Collier report a new method for coating single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) attached to atomic force microscope tips with conformal fluorocarbon polymers formed in an inductively coupled plasma reactor.
