Its very small in size, and the diameter measured in nanometers. They may be a few microns or a few millimeters as well. The unique honeycomb-like structure of pure carbon atoms in this carbon nanotube is an ideal way to explore the single dimensional physics and the stronger Coulomb correlations.Apart from this, the cylindrical shape of these carbon-based nanostructures gives them a unique quantum phenomenon when put near parallel magnetic fields, thanks to the Aharonov-Bohm effect.
These excellent properties make functionalized single walled carbon nanotube an ideal choice for numerous industrial and R&D applications and potential for more widespread use in the near future. A single-walled carbon nanotube is an innovative and efficient discovery. These are a tiny, hollow and considerably long cylinder that forms when pure carbon atoms form a hexagonal lattice with each other. The wall of the nanotube made of a single atomic sheet spread out like the honeycomb structure.
The carbon nanotube with single-walled structure has several unique and efficient properties which find widespread application and potential in commercial as well as R&D industries all over the world.
