Nanotube promise to enable quantum nanowires that perform almost as well as superconductors, but at room temperature and a fraction of the cost. Look for quantum nanowires in electronic devices within five years. R.C.J.
Here's what the researchers say about their work: Rice Univ. researchers report using ultracentrifugation (UCF) to create highly purified samples of carbon nanotube species. One team, led by Rice Professor Junichiro Kono and graduate students Erik Haroz and William Rice, has made a small but significant step toward the dream of an efficient nationwide electrical grid that depends on highly conductive quantum nanowire...
