As a member of the museum’s Board of Overseers and a longtime supporter, I can attest to the high quality and diversity of the museum’s exhibits and programs, as well as its mission in playing a leading role in transforming the nation’s relationship with science and technology.

A shining example of this is the museum’s NanoDays 2015, which was held this past April.  NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of nanoscale science where attendees can enjoy nano-related activities throughout the museum. Visitors of all ages have the opportunity to imagine, discover, and explore a world that’s too small to see.  During the most recent event, a short film was debuted, “From Lab To Fab: Pioneers in Nanomanufacturing” which follows the story of two nanotech entrepreneurs navigating the rocky road from discovery to commercialization, with products ranging from tiny implantable body sensors to bullet-proof vests and aircraft flooring.

shutterstock_70138570A few decades ago, we knew of only a few forms of carbon: diamond, graphite, and amorphous carbon. Today, thanks to rapid scientific advancements in the world of nanotechnology, we have discovered many other forms of carbon.

One of the most important developments is the carbon nanotube (CNT), which is related to graphite. The molecular structure of graphite resembles stacked, one-atom-thick sheets of chicken wire. In conventional graphite, the sheets of carbon are stacked on top of one another, allowing them to easily slide over each other. When these sheets are rolled into a cylinder and their edges joined, they form CNTs, which offer extraordinary mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, and chemical properties.
