NIST Study finds process for aligning carbon nanotubes.NIST Study finds process for aligning carbon nanotubes.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
January 16, 2009 A study by NIST and Rice University found a process that enables carbon nanotubes to self-assemble in rows. Advantageous to emerging electronic/materials technologies, nanotubes have been ineffectively created using solvents and DNA. NIST researchers found that bile acid, having a 2-faced geometry with opposing reactions to water, forms hollow rods that house rod-shaped nanotubes. While more development is needed, study gives recipe to create aligned arrangements of individual carbon nanotubes.
NIST Paper details design of super-sensitive gas detector.NIST Paper details design of super-sensitive gas detector.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
January 16, 2009 Titled "Fabrication and Gas Sensing Performance of Parallel Assemblies of Metal Oxide Nanotubes Supported by Porous Aluminum Oxide Membranes," NIST paper describes method of creating gas detectors sensitive enough to some day register gas emissions from single cells. The sensor's sensitivity is derived from responses of gas interacting with nanotube interiors. This could provide a way to determine if drugs or nanoparticles harm cells or to study how cells communicate.
NIST Scientists gain insight into polymer film instability.NIST Scientists gain insight into polymer film instability.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
January 16, 2009 While exploring the properties of polymer formation, NIST scientists have determined that temperature can play a decisive role in determining which of two competing processes - crystallization and dewetting - will dominate when semicrystalline polymer film hardens, thereby granting qualitatively different properties to finished film. This discovery could improve methods of creating stable crystalline films that are widely used in electronics applications.
