Carbon Nanotubes at Interface of Electronics, Aeronautics Show Exceptional Ability to Diffuse Damaging Heat Managing the heat in microelectronics is an ever-increasing problem. Shearing the heat from the superhot leading edges of hypersonic vehicles such as the Space Shuttle is another high priority research challenge. Scientists at ORNL have discovered that when vertically aligned carbon nanotub…

Material-Independent Design of Photoluminescent Systems Nanomaterials have attracted much attention recently because of their unique functionality. Researchers at ORNL have discovered a method to make nonluminescent nanostructured materials luminescent (photoluminescent and/or electroluminescent), independent of the starting material. This material-independent approach enables conversion of many …
