A Molecule With Potential

One of the new emerging technologies, with the potential to be a game changer, that is a hot topic in computer laboratories today is carbon nanotubes.

A carbon nanotube is:

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure. Nanotubes have been constructed with length-to-diameter ratio of up to 28,000,000:1,[1] which is significantly larger than any other material.

Of course this complicated description means that carbon nanotubes are special molocules with the potential to be very useful in design and manufacturing, including information technology. The idea of a nanocomputer goes back several decades, and in various forms, has been featured as a gimmick in several feature films, including the new GI Joe action film, in which nanocomputers are used to create Cobra supermen, whom the Joes were forced to defeat. Such is the world of fantasy and art. Continue reading »
