Building Circuits Without Touching Them: Watch Carbon Nanotubes Self-Assemble

Posted by in category: nanotechnology

Through Teslaphoresis, nanotubes can be directed to assemble themselves into wires within this force field, making it possible to build circuits without physical contact.

Scientists from Rice University found a way to conduct electricity without making physical contact between the circuit and the energy source. Using a Tesla coil’s antenna to project a gradient high-voltage forcefield into air, they were able to polarize carbon nanotubes within this Teslaphoretic (TEP) field, which then spring out like webs to assemble themselves into wires.
