Quantum Wires

Abstract:
Richard Smalley toys with a clear plastic tube that holds a thin, dark gray fiber. About 15 centimeters long, the fiber comprises billions of carbon nanotubes, and according to the Rice University chemist, it represents the first step toward a new type of wire that could transform the electrical power grid.
