I remember that - at least in the initial phase of discovery - the multiwall variety was actually easier to make than a single or double walled nanotube. An article I read showed an SEM photo of 7 nested nanotubes, for example. These would actually be preferable (I believe) for construction since not only do you have the tensile properties, you also have stiffness (from the nested tubes). From a chemical and electronic viewpoint, the single walled variety is more interesting since you can fill them up with metal atoms, forming nanowires.

Developing the ability to control the reaction to get the products you want is the key.

Better living (and researching) through chemistry.

Reason I haven't been on here more often is that I got some horrible news from the doctor and need 2 intensive surgeries where 2 concern my intestines and 1 being how horrible my sinus' are. Feel like complete shit but what am I going to do.

I just smoked some salvia and now I can SEE radio waves. Where is your god now?

last time i did salvia i suddenly felt myself in a car in the midst of a blizzard and some lady was calling out to me and i thought t was my girlfriend so i begrudgingly walked to the othe side of the world and somehow saw her through the blizzard and was like, "WHATD You sAY" ALL YELLINg CAUSE EverythIng WAS LOUD and then she was like, "i didn't say anything"

and then my high went away.

I dunno dude I have it on good authority that chemists are idiots.
EDIT: ok so I guess I really don't know much about nanotubes. Glancing a bit on the web, looks like multi-wall is really just in the far limit of bad fabrication technology. Do they have specific uses that single-walled fail at?

I don't know what else I can add that I didn't already. THe concept of nanowires is fairly old, and may have been shown to be impossible from a practical standpoint.

At least they aren't as dumb as biologists.

Ok so I got curious so I asked my friend about nanowires and got this:
12:03 PM Kevin: so i dont really know too much about nanowires, but nanotubes can do anything
12:05 PM we like them because they can be semiconducting or metallic, they have great transport along their length (good for shooting electrons around), one can make transparent conductors by degenerately doping the semiconducting tubes, we're also using them in solar cells with polymers
12:06 PM me: ok just got back from lab
12:07 PM ok so make me transparent aluminum
ugh you don't get star trak references
12:08 PM Kevin: but i guess people also like them because they have tensile strength and dont react away too easily, and people like using them for things like batteries and capacitors and i just read a paper on using them as guides for thermopower waves
chewie was in star trek too, right?
me: thermopower waves! :-o
12:09 PM that's so exciting that i'm gonna get lunch
seriously though that sounds cool what is that
Kevin: yum!
12:10 PM well basically they can have high thermal conductivity, so i think people showed that you could guide a chemical reaction down the length of the nanotube
its like lighting one end and having junk all along the tube that burns off and they think they can store lots of energy this way



Ok so great! Fun!

What can I say, life is beautiful and the world is terrible. But in all seriousness, I think this is very treatable. I'm really embarrassed talking about because it's in an area that's kind of personal but it's what I get for being scared of going to the doctor.

I have to go in for surgery the 31st for my sinuses (this isn't related to my more serious problem) but I think it has to be pushed back AGAIN due to me being sick right now and I wasn't supposed to take any medications for 2 weeks but I obviously had to this time. Then I have to go get more surgery for my serious problem which isn't going to be good at all. I'll most likely loose a little bit of my intestines with this one.

I'll be three sheets to the wind for the rest of my life (or what's left of it) starting now.

I know, we have an AGW thread, but posting this might be akin to starting a nuclear flame-war. This article has been presented in an objective manner, and it's thought-provoking.

News from the world of gaming.

What I like about this is that the students made the device from parts costing a grand total of about $50.
