Carbon Nanotubes: Recent Progress in Synthesis, Properties and Potential Applications

This talk will present our latest research on carbon nanotubes. We have been using carbon nanotubes as a model system to study interesting nanoscale problems concerning materials synthesis, solid-state physics and devices, and surface science. This presentation will cover our latest results in, (1) Controlled synthesis of nanotube structures on catalytically patterned surfaces. (2) Ballistic electron transport in both metallic and semiconducting nanotubes. (3) Pushing the performance limit of nanotube transistors, and (4) interfacing carbon nanotubes with biological systems including living cells, and the potential of nanotubes as a novel class of material for drug delivery applications.
