Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs), especially single-walled CNTs (SWNTs), are a representative nanomaterial which has various unique properties in addition to a diameter as small as 1 nm and a length as long as 1 mm and longer. Various applications have been proposed and extensively researched, however, practical applications are very limited due to the undeveloped fabrication processes. We are trying to fundamentally understand the way how the carbon nanotubes grow, and to fabricate them simply by self-organization processes.
