From Daily Tech:

Europe looks into the finer points of nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is a field becoming more and more utilized for everything from creating light-bending metamaterials to disease therapies to oil-absorbent metallic cloth. One of the staples of the nanotech field is the popular carbon nanotube. Widely used and studied, carbon nanotubes possess several properties which are propelling them through engineering fields of all sorts.

CNTs are tiny. Though they can have several wall configurations, they can be as thin as one molecule thick. Tailored sizes allow for use in various applications, like microscopic drug ferries or even functioning radios using just a single tube.
