Brownian dynamics simulations of single-wall carbon nanotube separation by type using dielectrophoresis
We theoretically investigate the separation of individualized metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) in a dielectrophoretic (DEP) flow device. The SWNTs motion is simulated by a Brownian Dynamics ...
Morphology of Carbon Nanotube Liquid Crystalline Phases: Insights into Tactoids and Columnar Phase
Solutions of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in chlorosulfonic acid (CSA) form liquid crystals at high concentrations. From a fundamental perspective, CNTs are an ideal candidate system for testing theories of liquid crystals for ...
Solution processing of boron nitride nanotubes and Bending behavior of carbon nanotube fibers
Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) are allotropes of boron nitride (BN). Unlike carbon nanotubes (CNTs), BNNTs have a high band-gap and stronger chemical resistance making them stable to temperatures around 1000 °C. Additionally, ...
Statistical Electron Microscopy, Rheometric Studies of Carbon Nanotube Solutions in Chlorosulfonic Acid and Characterization of Wire, Planar Antennas Manufactured from Macroscopic Carbon Nanotube Materials
Ever since their discovery in 1991, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been a topic of active scientific research. These tubular molecules of graphitic carbon display a unique amalgamation of mechanical, thermal and electrical ...
Towards Photocurrent Production By Gold Nanoarrays with Self-Assembled Monolayer Coatings
This thesis proposes to use optical rectennae (rectifying antennae) for generating electricity by harvesting solar energy. Rectennae have theoretical efficiency over 90%, well above that of current photovoltaic devices. ...
