Stanford researchers have created a basic system that shuns silicon in favor of imperfect lines of carbon atoms that could one day deliver even more performance and efficiency than current technology.
This teeny-weeny expression of love can't fail to impress. Just be sure to include a microscope.
Big Blue has developed a way to use a combination of chip patterns and chemical bonding to precisely place carbon nanotubes on computer chips. Here's a look at some of the technology involved.
MIT boffins create a new type of pencil lead that can draw hazardous-gas-detecting sensors on paper. Just don't bring it to the SAT.
Helping the hunt for something to replace silicon transistors, Big Blue researchers have found a way to precisely place carbon nanotubes -- or rather, to encourage them to place themselves.
In the pursuit of smaller transistors, IBM Research found that carbon nanotubes outperform silicon on speed and power consumption, offering a possible way to maintain the pace of Moore's Law.
A microfluidic device with porous nanotube forests can catch tumor cells and viruses, and could be used in developing countries.
Stanford researchers coat paper with carbon nanotubes and silver nanowires to serve as electricity storage devices. Go ahead, crumple it.
Scientists from Rice University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute figured out a way to trap light efficiently with nanotubes; 99.955 percent of the light that hits gets absorbed.
Radio, made out of a single carbon nanotube about 10,000 times thinner than a human hair, runs on batteries and requires headphones.
