Korean scientists develop longest carbon-nanotube
Korean and U.S scientists have succeeded in developing the world's thinnest and longest carbon nanotube, marking a technological breakthrough.
The team also succeeded in measuring the electronic properties of the very narrow single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) and found that, out of 20 samples, all were metallic while none showed semiconducting behavior, according to science journal Nature.
