UBC engineers send well wishes with nanotube image

olympicnano2UBC engineers have created a “good luck” image to Canadian athletes that covers an area smaller than a snowflake and contains over 100 million carbon nanotubes (each nanotube is 10 thousand times thinner than a human hair).

This work is the result of a collaborative effort between nanotube expert Asst. Prof. Alireza Nojeh, and micropatterning expert Asst. Prof. Kenichi Takahata from the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The image was created by graduate student Masoud Dahmardeh with assistance from graduate students Parham Yaghoobi and Mohamed Sultan Mohamed Ali.
