Researchers help sort out the carbon nanotube problem
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and university researchers report a significant step toward sorting out the nanotube "problem"-the challenge of overcoming processing obstacles so that the remarkable properties of the tiny cylindrical structures can be exploited in new polymer composite materials of exceptional strength. View News Article (2005-07-27)

UConn chemists find secret to increasing luminescence efficiency of carbon nanotubes
Chemists at the University of Connecticut have found a way to greatly increase the luminescence efficiency of single-walled carbon nanotubes, a discovery that could have significant applications in medical imaging and other areas. View News Article (2009-03-06)

Batteries get a boost at Rice
Need to store electricity more efficiently? Put it behind bars. That's essentially the finding of a team of Rice University researchers who have created hybrid carbon nanotube metal oxide arrays as electrode material that may improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries. View News Article (2009-02-10)

'Sifting' Liquid at the Cellular Level
Drexel University engineers continue to drive research into the use of carbon nanotubes, straw-like structures that are more than 1,000 times thinner than a single human hair. View News Article (2012-07-18)

Cells selectively absorb short nanotubes
DNA-wrapped single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) shorter than about 200 nanometers readily enter into human lung cells and so may pose an increased risk to health, according to scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The results of their laboratory studies appear in an upcoming issue of Advanced Materials. View News Article (2007-04-02)

Nanotube, heal thyself
Pound for pound, carbon nanotubes are stronger and lighter than steel, but unlike other materials, the miniscule cylinders of carbon - which are no wider than a strand of DNA - remain remarkably robust even when chunks of their bodies are blasted away with heat or radiation. View News Article (2007-02-16)

World's smallest radio uses single nanotube to pick up good vibrations
Physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, have built the smallest radio yet - a single carbon nanotube one ten-thousandth the diameter of a human hair that requires only a battery and earphones to tune in to your favorite station. View News Article (2007-11-01)

Nanotube foams flex and rebound with super compressibility
Carbon nanotubes have enticed researchers since their discovery in 1991, offering an impressive combination of high strength and low weight. View News Article (2005-11-28)

MIT researchers make carbon nanotubes without metal catalyst
Carbon nanotubes - tiny, rolled-up tubes of graphite - promise to add speed to electronic circuits and strength to materials like carbon composites, used in airplanes and racecars. View News Article (2009-08-11)

Researchers Create DNA-Based Sensors for Nano-Tongues and Nano-Noses
Nano-sized carbon tubes coated with strands of DNA can create tiny sensors with abilities to detect odors and tastes, according to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Monell Chemical Sciences Center. View News Article (2005-09-16)
