Introduction to nanotechnology concepts and applications. Nanotechnology is the study and use of structures between 1 nanometer and 100 nanometers in size. Introduction to nanoparticles and nanotechnology applications.
What is a buckyball (C60): Discussion of the structure and properties of buckballs.
Carbon nanotubes were discovered in 1991. Where buckyballs are round, nanotubes are cylinders that haven’t folded around to create a sphere.
What is Graphene?
What is graphene? Graphene is composed of sheets of carbon atoms that are only one atom thick. Graphene has the same structure of carbon atoms linked in hexagonal shapes to form carbon nanotubes, but graphene is flat rather than cylindrical.
