Surface smoothing increases carbon nanotube luminescence 40-fold

By developing a process in which a chemical 'sleeve' tightly wraps itself around the nanotube, scientists managed to not only create a smooth new surface on the nanotube but also to 'clean' its underlying exterior of defects in a way that has never been accomplished before.
