Self-organizing structure
Refers to a desired structure that self-forms naturally, without the need for complex controls.
A hexagonal lattice of carbon atoms. Graphite consists of layers of graphene stacked on top of each other.
 Current-density tolerance
The limit of high-density current that can flow through a material without changing its physical structure.
 Field electron emitter
A device that extracts electrons from a fixed surface employing an electrical field. Displays referred to as field-emission displays (FED) operate on the principle of electrons bumping up against fluorescent bodies, and causing them to emit light.
 Aligned growth
A growth pattern that grows perpendicular to a substrate.
 Multi-walled carbon nanotube
A type of carbon nanotube in which multiple graphene layers are arranged concentrically as a cylinder. Sizes vary in diameter from a few nanometers, to a few tens of nanometers.
A molecule consisting of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a soccer-ball like structure.
A complex nanostructure consisting of fullerene laid out in a row inside a carbon nanotube. Named for its resemblance to a peapod.
