Carbon nanomaterials (CNMs), such as single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), and graphene (Figure 1), have diverse commercial applications including lighter and stronger composite materials, improved energy storage devices, more sensitive sensors, and smaller transistors.
Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT) are close structural analogs of carbon nanotubes (CNT), which are high aspect ratio nanotubular material, where carbon atoms are alternately substituted by nitrogen and boron atoms.
Dr. Xiang’s and Maruyama’s review presents the most recent research activities on 1D vdWHs, including the candidate materials, the synthetic techniques, and characterization methods. The optoelectronic applications are discussed in detail for different constructions of the 1D vdWHs-based devices (FETs
Graphene is a one-atomic-layer thick two-dimensional material made of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. Its fascinating electrical, optical, and mechanical properties ignited enormous interdisciplinary interest from the physics, chemistry, and materials science fields.
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are promising materials for
use in the active channel of field-effect transistors (FETs), photoabsorbing
layers of solar cells and photodetectors because of their ultrafast charge
