Evidence suggests that carbon nanotubes, tiny tubes consisting of pure carbon, could be forged in the envelopes of dust and gas surrounding dying stars. The findings propose a simple, yet elegant mechanism for the formation and survival of complex carbon molecules in space.
Congratulations to Zoë Wilbur and Yi Zhang, recipients of the Hitachi Electron Microscopy Scholarship for 2022/2023!
Combining atomic-scale sample analysis and models simulating likely conditions in the nascent solar system, a new study reveals clues about the origin of crystals that formed more than 4.5 billion years ago.
Don't miss out on the premier microscopy education and networking event of the year - Microscopy & Microanalysis 2022 in Portland, Oregon!
