Students build carbon nano structures in hypergravity05 May 2014 A Spin Your Thesis! experiment has shown that carbon nano materials are built differently under conditions of hypergravity. These results are useful for understanding the synthesis of carbon nano structures and the behaviour of gliding arc discharges.
