Nanotubes News

Nanotubes are minuscule cylindrical structures with diameters measured in nanometers, typically made from carbon (known as carbon nanotubes) or other materials like boron nitride. Carbon nanotubes, discovered in 1991 by Sumio Iijima, exhibit remarkable electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties, including superior strength and conductivity compared to most materials. These properties make them highly useful in various applications, including in nanotechnology, electronics, optics, and other fields of materials science. They also play a critical role in developing new materials and devices at the nanoscale, such as ultra-small transistors, batteries, and sensors.
