Carbon Nanotube Technology

Carbon nanotubes, or CNTs, are tubes of carbon atoms less than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) in diameter. CNTs possess a combination of unique properties that make them highly programmable for a variety of purposes, including flat panel displays. In May 2005 Motorola Labs unveiled the first working 5-inch color video display prototype based on their proprietary carbon nanotube technology.
