The Nanotube Site

Mirror Sites:

The Nanotube Site Logo Maybe the most significant spin-off product of fullerene research, leading to the discovery of the C60 "buckyball" by the 1996 Nobel Prize laureates Robert F. Curl, Harold W. Kroto, and Richard E. Smalley, are nanotubes based on carbon or other elements. These systems consist of graphitic layers seamlessly wrapped to cylinders. With only a few nano-meters in diameter, yet (presently) up to a milli-meter long, the length-to-width aspect ratio is extremely high. A truly molecular nature is unprecedented for macroscopic devices of this size. Accordingly, the number of both specialized and large-scale applications is growing constantly.

The primary purpose of The Nanotube Site is to facilitate the exchange of ideas among researchers by concentrating links to sites dedicated to nanotubes. One of the benefits is to provide an easier (or better structured) electronic access to bibliographical information and preprints. Information about providers of nanotubes is intended to increase the production volume and find new applications for nanotubes.

The Nanotube Site is maintained regularly by David Tomanek, work and travel schedule permitting. Help would be appreciated.
