Title: NIST's Stretching Exercises Shed New Light On Nanotubes
Description: Biomedical applications could exploit the natural fluorescence of the carbon nanotubes. When light is polarized along a single-walled carbon nanotube (left), this fluorescent emission is strong. For perpendicular polarization (right), however, the emission disappears.
