Carbon Nanotubes takes a huge examine CNTs and the instruments used to review them. It opens with a normal advent to the fundamental features and the historical past of CNTs, through discussions on synthesis equipment and the expansion of "peapod" buildings. insurance then strikes to digital houses and band buildings of single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs), magnetic houses, Raman spectroscopy of digital and chemical habit, and electromechanical houses and functions in NEMS. Turning to purposes, the ultimate sections of the e-book discover mechanical houses of SWNTs spun into fibers, sidewall functionalization in composites, and utilizing SWNTs as assistance for scanning probe microscopes"
