Carbon Nanotubes:  Electrons and Phonons on the Nanoscale

James Hone

(Department of Physics, University of Pennsylvania)

Abstract:  Carbon nanotubes are unique in that both their electrons and phonons should be quantized at reasonable temperatures.  I will describe thermal and thermoelectric experiments which probe the unique properties of this system on many size scales.  In addition, I will discuss manipulation of the electronic properties of these materials by doping and local charge transfer, and the use of nanotubes in novel lithography techniques.

Host: Ellen Williams
