Scientific Image - Singlewalled Nanotube Paper

Magnified image of singlewalled nanotubes using a Scanning Electron Microscope.

DESCRIPTION

A bundle of singlewalled nanotubes processed into a thin sheet is shown in this scanning electron microscope image. Singlewalled nanotubes are extremely important in the continuing miniaturization of electronic devices. These tubes have an average diameter of 1-2 nm. Their electrical properties have led to their investigation as super capacitors for storing electrical charges. • SIZE: The thickness of the sheet is about 50 µm. • IMAGING TOOL: Scanning electron microscope

OBJECTIVES

NANO CONTENT MAP

Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.

Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
