Engineering conductance of carbon nanotubes?

from the What-can't-you-do-with-them? dept.
Gina Miller writes "The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced (on Sept. 20, 2002) a theoretical study suggesting that 'Superconducting nanotubes may lie on the technology horizon': Can Nanotubes Be Engineered to Superconduct? The calculations suggest that strategically placed hydrogen atoms on the exteriors of carbon nanotubes could dramatically affect the electronic properties of the resulting materials.
