Carbon nanotubes hottest topic in physics

Abstract:
Carbon nanotubes are the hottest topic in physics, according to a new way of ranking the popularity of different scientific fields. Nanowires are second, followed by quantum dots, fullerenes, giant magnetoresistance, M-theory and quantum computation. The new ranking has been developed by Michael Banks, a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Solid-State Physics in Stuttgart, Germany. He thinks the index could be a quick and simple way of determining the most important subject areas in physics and could even help graduate students choose which field to do their PhD.
