Arrays of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have shown the ability to react as foam-like structures and display local buckling within the bulk. The arrays, or turfs, are high aspect ratio CNT fibers that extend up to [...]
Carbon nanotubes (CNT) cathodes are cold field emitters. CNT photocathode consist in combination of CNTs with photodetectors. In a CNT photocathode, the photodetector limits the current that the CNT emit under electric field. As a [...]
