A New Use for Tesla Coils: Self-Assembling Nanotubes

Posted by in category: nanotechnology

Researchers at Rice University are working on self-assembling wires that can move matter, essentially “force fields” powered by Tesla coils.

They’ve been working “very quietly,” said adjunct assistant professor Paul Cherukuri. He describes the project, which incorporates Tesla coils and nano-scale filaments, as “self-assembly at a distance.” The project started when the researchers were working with nanotubes, just seeing what they could do when pairing the coils with the electrification from Tesla coils.
