Quotes

A close-up of the pH chip. So why does it say “Pitt” on there? Star explains, "You need some features on the chip for quality control – to make sure that the photolithography process was successful. So we decided to spell 'Pitt' rather than [make] a simple line. These gold lines are smaller in diameter than the fingers of our interdigitated electrodes (on the right), which we use for sensing. So if you can see [the] 'Pitt' letters, then all the electrode features are manufactured successfully."
..."The outcome is that these fibers have the highest CCC ever reported for any carbon-based fibers," Kono said. "Copper still better resistivity by an order of magnitude, but we have the advantage that carbon fiber is light. So if you divide the CCC by the mass, we win."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In short, by tailoring the deterministic factors above, we can effectively control the dispersion or even spatial organization of onedimensional nanorods in polymer nanocomposites."
"In some embodiments, the present disclosure provides methods for producing a carbon nanostructure that is free of a growth substrate. The methods can include providing a carbon nanostructure adhered to a growth substrate, and removing the carbon nanostructure from the growth substrate to form a carbon nanostructure that is free of the growth substrate. The carbon nanostructure contains a plurality of carbon nanotubes that are branched, crosslinked, and share common walls with one another."
