Carbon nanotubes in various configurations are shown sprouting from nanoscopic holes. The high density of the crystal-like carbon nanotubes allows them to conduct electricity nearly as well as copper, potentially making them viable as connections in ultra-large scale integrated computer circuits. The carbon nanotubes below are shown at varying scales.
