Microscopic carbon nanotubes a hundred thousand times thinner than a human hair may have the potential to transport electricity faster and over greater distances with minimal loss of energy, according to new research by Honda Research Institute USA, Inc., that will be published Friday, in the October 2nd edition of Science magazine. A scanning electron microscope is required to view this chiral mapping image of carbon nanotubes that are preferentially grown by controlling the shape and size of the catalyst. Tubes growing on red and pink exhibit metallic properties, while semiconducting tubes are on blue. The height of the nanotubes indicates the probability of each specific tube in the experiment.
