Quartz keeps nanotubes in line

  April 28/May 5, 2008
A recipe for growing single-walled carbon nanotubes on quartz surfaces yields relatively dense arrays of long, parallel nanotubes. The technique could lead to ways of mass producing carbon nanotube arrays for building new types of computer chips and other electronics.
