Departmental Colloquium


Carbon Nanotubes as Optical Quantum Wires

Paul Finnie
National Research Council - Institute for Microstructural Sciences

Time
 
Wed. November 17, 2004     12:30 PM     Stirling A

Abstract
 

The single walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) is probably the most perfect real-world example of a quantum wire. Such quantum wire structures, in addition to their fundamental interest, are thought to be promising for optoelectronic applications. Recent experiments by our group at IMS and others show that SWNTs can indeed be good light emitters. I will outline our methods and describe some of the luminescent properties recently uncovered in this emerging material system.

The departmental colloquium is open to all, and aimed at a senior undergraduate level. Please join us in the physics lounge for an informal reception after the talk!
