Lab Boosts Physics Research

Abstract:
A nanotech paper accepted for publication this summer in a premier physics journal offers a harbinger of research to come from a new electron microscope lab in Higgins Hall, according to Physics faculty members.

In the paper to be published next month by the American Physical Society journal Physical Review Letters, Prof. Zhifeng Ren (Physics) and colleagues demonstrate that the interior as well as the exterior walls of double-walled and multi-walled nanotubes conduct electrons.
