Summary and Info
Carbon Nanotubes takes a broad look at CNTs and the tools used to study them. It opens with a general introduction to the basic characteristics and the history of CNTs, followed by discussions on synthesis methods and the growth of "peapod" structures. Coverage then moves to electronic properties and band structures of single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs), magnetic properties, Raman spectroscopy of electronic and chemical behavior, and electromechanical properties and applications in NEMS. Turning to applications, the final sections of the book explore mechanical properties of SWNTs spun into fibers, sidewall functionalization in composites, and using SWNTs as tips for scanning probe microscopes"
