A 2D ‘antenna’ boosts light emission from carbon nanotubes

Posted by in categories: nanotechnology, particle physics, quantum physics

A flat sheet of atoms can act as a kind of antenna that absorbs light and funnels its energy into carbon nanotubes, making them glow brightly. This advance could aid the development of tiny future light-emitting devices that will exploit quantum effects.
