Self-Assembled Nanotubes Exhibit Photoconductivity

[optics.org] Japanese scientists have made highly photoconductive nanotubes that they believe could be used for photovoltaic applications. “The nanotube, upon exposure to light, shows a large photoconductive response with an on/off ratio greater than 10,000,” Takanori Fukushima told nanotechweb.org. “Such outstanding properties have never been realized at the nanometer-level by other conductive polymers and carbon-based materials.” … The researchers reported their work in Science.
