NIST's 'Nanotubes on a Chip' May Simplify Optical Power Measurements

Caption: The circular patch of carbon nanotubes on a pink silicon backing is one component of NISTís new cryogenic radiometer, shown with a quarter for scale. Gold coating and metal wiring has yet to be added to the chip. The radiometer will simplify and lower the cost of disseminating measurements of laser power.
