Ship In A Bottle

Abstract:
It's not just because carbon nanotubes usually are empty that researchers try to trap atoms or molecules inside them. Scientists suspect that nanotubes filled with metal atoms could have promising applications as catalysts and semiconductors. Now, a research group in Japan has devised a method to precisely control the size and location of metal clusters within a single-walled carbon nanohorn - a megaphone-shaped type of nanotube.
