ABSTRACT
The article reports on the research conducted by a team of researchers about the use of carbon nanotubes as biomolecule tags for identifying cancer and on the development of exciton antenna. It reveals that these researchers have expanded the application of carbon nanotubes through its construction of electronically homogeneous single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) materials. Also noted is dielectrophoresis (DEP), a process which creates homogeneous fibers.
