Japanese research has carbon nanotubes marching to market

TOKYO -- Japanese researchers are working hard to find new applications for carbon nanotubes -- tiny molecular structures whose plethora of special properties have earned them the sobriquet of "dream material."

A researcher works on a composite material mixed with carbon nanotubes at Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.

     Much of their latest efforts center on mixing carbon nanotubes with such materials as resin, rubber and metal to make never-before-seen composites for use in nanotechnology, electronics and other fields.
