From Nano- to Neutron Science: Basic Research at ORNL

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Vol. 34, No. 2, 2001

This issue provides highlights of basic research at ORNL, including research on producing, characterizing, and finding applications for carbon nanotubes produced at ORNL by several techniques. The cover image shows single-wall carbon nanotubes created by laser vaporization (note pink laser plume), which were then chemically purified and spray-deposited onto a substate.
