Description

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are tubular cylinders of carbon atoms that have extraordinary mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical and chemical properties. CNTs typically have diameters ranging from ‹1 nanometer (nm) up to 50 nm—a nanometer is one thousand millionth of a meter. Typical CNT lengths are several microns—several thousand nanometers long; by contrast, Nanocomp's produced ?bers are measured in millimetersthousands of times longer than all other commercially produced CNTs. They take the form of cylindrical carbon molecules and have novel properties that make them potentially useful in a wide variety of applications in nanotechnology, electronics, optics and other ?elds of materials science. They exhibit extraordinary strength and unique electrical properties, and are e?cient conductors of heat. In the powdery format o?ered by all CNT producers (but for NTI), applications are limited to the properties possible by this form factor—e.g. additive active ingredients in semiconductors, liquid crystal displays (LCDs), sensors, and other uses in which these powders add some level of functional performance. Due to its ?ber length and its form factors, NTI delivers strength and conductivity unlike any other commercial CNT producer, and so can address a much broader array of applications for which its material rivals copper and aluminum in conductivity, and steel, aluminum, carbon ?bers and glass composites where strength and lightweight matter. Carbon nanotubes have been a subject of exhaustive research for a wide range of applications. The purpose of this book entitled Properties of Carbon Nanotubes is to give in-depth understanding of the physics and electronic structure of carbon nanotubes. This book discusses fabrication techniques followed by an analysis on the physical properties of carbon nanotubes, including density of states and electronic structures. Eventually, the book follows a signi?cant amount of work in the industry applications of carbon nanotubes.
