Unveiling the electron's motion in a carbon nanocoil
16 May 2016
Development of a precise resistivity measurement system for quasi-one-dimensional nanomaterials using a focused ion beam
Toyohashi Tech researchers, in cooperation with researchers at University of Yamanashi, National Institute of Technology, Gifu College, and Tokai Carbon Co., Ltd., have discovered how the electrical resistivity of carbon nanocoils (CNCs) depends on their geometry. The finding, which required development of a new resistivity measuring apparatus, paves the way for CNC-based nanodevices ranging from electromagnetic wave absorbers to nano-solenoids and extra-sensitive mechanical springs.
