  The Dark Side of Carbon Nanotubes  
(Seminar/Conference)

Dr. John H. Lehman of NIST Boulder will present "The Dark Side of Carbon Nanotubes"... Since their discovery in the early nineties, carbon nanotubes have received a great deal of publicity; from the popular press to the most obscure scientific journals. Meanwhile, many people in the scientific community view the promise of carbon nanotube technology with skepticism. In this talk I will briefly address the Dark Side as a metaphor for the hype that is separate from reality. Moreover, I will address the fact that carbon nanotubes are literally dark. That is, carbon nanotube coatings may be employed as black absorbers with low thermal mass. The interaction of light and carbon nanotubes will be discussed along with more specific questions about dielectric function, laser induced damage and laser based cleaning of carbon nanotube coatings.
