Seed crystals and catalyzed epitaxy of single-walled carbon nanotubes
This thesis demonstrates the continued growth of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) from seeded SWNTs in a way analogous to epitaxy or cloning; that is, the SWNTs grow as a seamless extension to the existing seeded ...
Carbon-Based Nanostructures as Advanced Contrast Agents for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Superparamagnetic carbon-based nanostructures are presented as contrast agents (CAs) for advanced imaging applications such as cellular and molecular imaging using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Gadolinium-loaded, ...
