carbon nano tube (CNT)

Carbon nanotubes

(CNTs) are tiny tubes with a diameter of just over one nanometre (nm). The carbon nanotubes consist of carbon atoms whose hexagonal graphene

arerolled up into a tube with a length of up to several centimetres. Each carbon atom is honeycombed with three other carbon atoms.

Because graphene behaves like semiconductors, CNT tubes can be used as semiconductors for transistors. In addition, carbon nanotubes are used as electrode material in double-layer capacitors and in Nano Emissive Displays (NED).
