Carbon nanotube fiber terahertz polarizer
(AIP Publishing, 2016)
Conventional, commercially available terahertz (THz) polarizers are made of uniformly and precisely spaced metallic wires. They are fragile and expensive, with performance characteristics highly reliant on wire diameters ...
Strong, Light, Multifunctional Fibers of Carbon Nanotubes with Ultrahigh Conductivity
Broader applications of carbon nanotubes to real-world problems have largely gone unfulfilled because of difficult material synthesis and laborious processing. We report high-performance multifunctional carbon nanotube ...
Carbon nanotube woven textile photodetector
(American Physical Society, 2018)
The increasing interest in mobile and wearable technology demands the enhancement of functionality of clothing through incorporation of sophisticated architectures of multifunctional materials. Flexible electronic and ...
High-Ampacity Power Cables of Tightly-Packed and Aligned Carbon Nanotubes
The current-carrying capacity (CCC), or ampacity, of highly-conductive, light, and strong carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers is characterized by measuring their failure current density (FCD) and continuous current rating (CCR) ...
Charged iodide in chains behind the highly efficient iodine doping in carbon nanotubes
(American Physical Society, 2017)
The origin of highly efficient iodine doping of carbon nanotubes is not well understood. Relying on first-principles calculations, we found that iodine molecules (I2) in contact with a carbon nanotube interact to form ...
