The Next Generation of Nanomanipulation

Topology optimisation is a powerful computerbased method for obtaining better mechanical designs… the algorithm does not care about engineer-aesthetics – yet the designs are strangely beautiful. The films shows a manipulation sequence where a carbon nanotube is broken off and transferred to a “TEM grid” – a sample suited for inspection with a Transmission Electron […]

Placing a carbon nanotube on a microfinger

The nanotube changes its electrical resistance when stretched – so it can sense strain. Jakob Kjelstrup-Hansen here put a 80 nm nanotube down on the back of a microfinger, using a multifingered probe. After that he put electrodes on – this makes it a microfinger with a sense of touch. You can see how the […]

Growing Carbon Nanotubes

Very simple method (CVD spray pyrolysis) for producing multiwalled carbon nanotubes at industrial scale. They grow inside a quartz tube at 900° C, from a mixture of ferrocene, toluene and argon gas Duration : 0:0:49

Carbon nanotubes (fuel cell catalyst support)

Carbon nanotubes used as catalyst support for fuel cell and hydrogen generation research. After being suspended in a surfactant solution, the carbon nanotubes precipitated when acetone was added. Duration : 0:0:27

Movie 2 : Carbon nanotubes as you have never “seen” them

http://www.nano2hybrids.net: Second video of 3D-imaging of gold c ers deposited on carbon nanotubes. These two videos were generated by recording several TEM (transmission electron microscope) images of the same nanotube at different tilt angles, and by using a dedicated computer program to construct a 3-dimensional view. This work was carried out on samples provided by […]
