Happy birthday to galdrin and sunspiral!
It would appear that I overdid it yesterday. Ah well. At least I'll have a good set of symptoms to show the doctor today, right?
Doctor, nap, writing. If I end up feeling okay post-doctor-visit, I may wander around a bit, but right now I'm thinking nap is more likely.
As it is, nanotubes are tiny. But researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have found a way to make these carbon structures even smaller. The size of the tubes, which are used in mass and chemical sensors as well as transistors and oscillators, impart properties that allow for more exacting performance--for instance, the ability to oscillate at higher frequencies or improved conductivity.
And now I am off to haul stuff down to the trash.
