Summary

Nanotubes can be semiconducting or metallic depending on their diameter and chirality. This feature is very interesting for many applications. In her Perspective, Dresselhaus highlights the reports by Ouyang et al. and Collins et al., which advance our understanding of the nanotube conduction process substantially and help us move toward applying this knowledge in nanoelectronics.
