Cables made of carbon nanotubes are inching towards electrical conductivities seen in metal wires, which may light up interest among a range of industries, according to Rice University researchers.
A Rice lab made such a cable from double walled carbon nanotubes and showed it powering a fluorescent light bulb at standard line voltage, a true test of the novel material's ability to claim a stake in energy systems of the future.
