Two recent papers by Dr. Bedewy are featured in the news
Two recent papers by Dr. Bedewy were highlited in the news on PHYS.ORG. These papers show for the first time the population behavior of catalyst nanoparticle formation, activation and growth of carbon nanotubes by environmental transmission electron microscopy (E-TEM). This high resolution imaging technique reveals the mechanical interactions between neighboring CNTs as they crowd each other during the initial stages of growth of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes.
This work was done with collaborators from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Prof. A. John Hart’s group), Brookhaven National Laboratory (Dr. Eric Stach and Dr. Dmitri Zakharov) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Dr. Eric Meshot).
