This book overviews the current status of research and development activities of CNTs in nanodevices, nanomaterials, or nanofabrication. This book presents 15 state-of-the-art review articles that cover CNT synthesis technologies for growing highly orientated CNTs, chirality-pure CNTs and CNTs at a large throughput and low cost, CNT assembly techniques, CNT sorting and separation processes, CNT functionalization engineering for more functionalities, CNT fundamental properties and their practical/potential electrical, electronic, optical, mechanical, chemical and biological applications.
"…a rich compilation of reviews on various aspects of CNT research and technology… This edited book brings together 16 state-of-the-art chapters written by different groups covering most areas of CNT research and technology. It will be a valuable reference work and an important addition to the CNT literature, and will appeal to scientists and engineers involved with nanomaterials, nanodevices, and fabrication at the nanoscale level."
