Application Note: Characterization of Carbon Nanotubes using Tip-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS)
21 December 2017

Carbon nanotubes are now manufactured in large volumes (several thousand tons per year) and are present in many daily life products ranging from car parts, batteries, and sports equipment, to water filtration systems and boat equipment. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go to produce single wall carbon nanotubes in large scale devices with exceptional theoretical electrical and thermal conductivities and mechanical resistance. Additional knowledge is essential for boosting CNT integration into thin film microelectronics, optoelectronics, and medical devices.
