Others prefer nano-particles for things such as drug delivery. Still others engineer catalysts. And finally quantum dots, which allow for various color emissions. That's all I can think of at the moment.
Nanotubes for electron emitters without filaments.

I heard quite a bit of discussion about nanotubes today. There is a professor in my department who is quite arguably the Bussard of nanotubes.

Wisconsin - Madison

Illinois - Champaign Urbana

(hint - please pick one of those two please, please, please)

Drop all others from consideration if BFR IEC is your goal.

The reasons will be clear in a year or three. I can say no more. In fact I may have said too much.

I have my reasons. Nothing wrong with Auburn. Good school. But as I said. I have my reasons.
