Graphene Nanoribbons (2 of 2) (image) Rice University Caption Islands of tin oxide ride alongside a graphene nanoribbon (at top) in a slurry used in anodes for lithium ion batteries. The 10-nanometer tin oxide particles are kept separated by the nanoribbons, which are created by splitting multiwalled carbon nanotubes.
