The Longest Carbon Nanotubes You've Ever Seen

Researchers from University of Cincinnati have created the worlds longest carbon nanotube. It is so long, it isn't "nano" anymore! :)

It's pretty neat. They use a CVD technique at a company's facility that specializes in such a thing.

So what do you use something this big for?

Dear ZapperZ,
Dear All,

Further to this interesting post on nano materials, I would like to invite you to join the discussion on integrated physical-chemical analysis of plastic based and high-tech materials. These materials are applied in all sorts of promising applications; think of solar cells, windmill blades and CO2 storage facilities. A proper prediction of service life, of maintenance and of ageing is vital for medium and long term operation. The intrinsic material complexity requires integrated analysis of mechanics, corrosion and diffusion, unfortunately still distinct disciplines. At our platform you can learn form the experts and share your knowledge regarding this important subject:
