Fully employing the arc discharge/laser vaporization methods, we aimed at: solving production mechanisms as well as the creation of nanotube materials; searching for physical/chemical modification methods for produced materials; and explicating a new technique of evaluating the produced materials and the compounds at the atomic level. Building a formation in which French side evaluate the properties of carbon nanotube materials, we promoted our collaborative research while mutually sending researchers of both sides.
The attraction for carbon nanotubes widely extends from basic science to industrial applications toward next generation, flat display equipment, transistors, fuel batteries, etc. Since those studies are being actively carried out on global scale, our findings are expected to become the foundations of further improvements in nanotube-material research.
