The principles of molecule-selective nanovalves in carbon nanotubes

Abstract:
Associate Professor Yutaka Maniwa's group with the Graduate School of Science and Engineering of Tokyo Metropolitan University and Hiromichi Kataura, chief of the Self-Assembled Nano-Electronics Group at the Nanotechnology Research Institute of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) jointly demonstrated the adsorption of water molecules into a Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube (SWCNT) under different gas ambiences and discovered the "exchange transition" phenomenon involving ambient gas and water molecules.
