Title:  Electrons in Carbon Nanostructures


Abstract:  Recently, there has been tremendous interest in 
nanostructures built entirely out of carbon.  The most famous 
are: (1) the C60 molecule (a.k.a. buckyball) -- a soccer-ball 
shaped molecule consisting of 60 carbon atoms; and (2) single-walled 
nanotubes - nanometer diameter cylinders made from rolling up single 
graphene sheets.  These carbon nanostructures are proving to be 
wonderful systems for the study of the physics of electrons in 
reduced dimensions.  They also have a variety of technological 
applications (both demonstrated and potential), in areas ranging 
from materials to electronics to biotechnology.   In this talk, 
I will discuss our group's recent efforts to probe the electrical 
and electromechanical properties of these fascinating systems.
