MOTIVATION

Red Line

  • One of the grand challenges of today's nanotechnology is the scale reduction of electronic and mechanical devices to atomic dimensions.
  • This has led to increased effort in laboratories throughout the word in the development of novel materials where atomically precise control over matter is required.
  • Owing to recent advances in the synthesis of nearly mono-dispersed carbon nanotubes with a diameter of 1.0-1.4 nm, yet hundreds of microns in length, carbon nanotubes appear to be ideal candidates for such advanced materials
