Bundle of Tiny Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes in various configurations are shown sprouting from nano-sized holes. The high density of the crystal-like carbon nanotubes allows them to conduct electricity nearly as well as copper, potentially making them viable as connections in ultra-large scale integrated computer circuits.


Crystal-like carbon nanotubes could serve as wiring for future computers.
