Growing nanotubes on AFM tip will speed CNT R&D

Abstract:
Brian Wang: Refining this technique so that nanotubes can be grown and weighed at the same time, then the process can be scaled up to many (thousands/millions) of parallel analysis. Like computational chemistry or gene chip arrays it will accelerate the rate of progress in the mastery of nanotubes. Plus it shows that if other nanoscale structures can be grown and measured on AFM tips that it would be a pathway to accelerating trial and error learning of chemical vapor deposition, self-assembly and other currently poorly understood processes, which require fine tuning of optimal conditions.
