Carbon in a twirl: The science behind a self-assembled nano-carbon helix

The unique shape of the carbon nanomoustaches

Nanotechnology draws on the fabrication of nanostructures. We have now succeeded in growing a unique carbon structure at the nanoscale that resembles a tiny twirled moustache. Our method might lead the way to the formation of more complex nano-networks. The results have been published in the new open access journal of the Nature Publishing group, Scientific Reports.
