Real-Time Observation of Nanotube Disassembly
14 February 2012
In this note researchers used the DSD Revolution confocal microscope to monitor a cross-section of a nanotube during irradiation. The researchers also used the DSD microscope to follow controlled disassembly of the nanotube/vesicle system. They hope to create new light-responsive nanoscale structures that could one day find use in applications such as smart materials and drug delivery.
