Nanoscale Tubing Assembles Itself Instantly

Abstract:
Making tubes useful often means joining them to other tubes and linking them together in networks. Easy enough to do with standard water pipes but on the nanoscale, joining nanotubes is hard to do.

Efforts to link nanotubes have usually begun with the most familiar kind, cylinders whose structure is equivalent to one or more rolled-up sheets of a layered crystal like graphite. Now researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) and the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel, Germany, have found a completely new way to form complex networks of nanotubes.
