Nanoscale pasta: Toward nanoscale electronics

Abstract:
Pasta tastes like pasta - with or without a spiral. But when you jump to the nanoscale, everything changes: carbon nanotubes and nanofibers that look like nanoscale spiral pasta have completely different electronic properties than their non-spiraling cousins. Engineers at UC San Diego, and Clemson University are studying these differences in the hopes of creating new kinds of components for nanoscale electronics.

"We are looking at spiraling, bent and helical carbon nanotubes from the point of view of new functionality. Can we get something totally different from these nonlinear nanotubes?" asked Prab School of Engineering.

For example, spiral shaped nanotubes could turn out to be important for new kinds of nanoscale switching and memory storage devices.
