Nanotubes assemble! Rice introduces ‘Teslaphoresis’Nanotubes assemble! Rice introduces ‘Teslaphoresis’
Reconfigured Tesla coil aligns, electrifies materials from a distance
Scientists at Rice University have discovered that the strong force field emitted by a Tesla coil causes carbon nanotubes to self-assemble into long wires, a phenomenon they call “Teslaphoresis.”  (April 14, 2016)
