Originální abstrakt

Carbon nanotubes are considered to have some exceptional characteristics. They’re six times lighter and a hundred times stronger than steel. Some behave like metal conductors while others act like semiconductors, and they might form the basis of future computers. They can also move heat through themselves better than diamonds, for this reason, they open up new perspectives for various applications, such as nano-transistors in circuits, for hydrogen storage in fuel cells, as artificial muscles, or as an added reinforcement in alloys. Above all, in the field of electronics these macromolecules will one day replace silicon.
