This film derives from the Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies DVD.
Annick Loiseau (ONERA, Microstructures Laboratory) describes carbon nanotubes, their geometries, properties and multiple applications.
They were discovered in Japan in 1991 by Sumio Iijima but are the result of extensive research on the various possible structures of carbon compounds. This research was stimulated by the discovery of fullerenes in 1985 by Harold Kroto, Robert Curl and Richard Smalley.
Carbon nanotubes are exceptional molecules that have become some of the emblematic objects of nanotechnologies.
