Carbon is cheaper as material but it doesn't mean automatically that end
product is also cheap.
It you read the article carefully, you will find a lot of advantages which
might play a crutual role and make BN nanotube applications much cheaper
than carbon. For example, temp stability to oxidation, properties
independence on diameter and number of layers the tube is made from (!), by
doping BN tubes, it is conceivable to have devices on single BN tubes which
have diameters on the order of nanometers and lengths on the order of
All those could make applications much cheaper!
So my question remains. Why so much talks about carbon?
Do you know laser physics Dusk? What is your degree in? I wrote laser fusion pellet report that contains a breakhtough nanotextured laser fusion pellet. I am looking for scientists to review it.

What frequency range are you using Neil? I might be able to help you with that part of understanding the equation. Also I would need to know spedcific properties of what the beam is being projected toward and what not. I have done a bit of laser work myself. I know you'll need your circuit to be specially made in order to keep the inductance right. It is possible to make it in experiemental phase though and figure out the exact bandwidth you need to be using to get the best resonance from it. That requires a bit of end information as well. It's really a not well shared field. My personal opinon.

Yeah, considering you asked a question of someone who hasn't posted for 4 years, what frequency range are you using Neil?
