Ion stripper device made of carbon nanotubes or fullerenes

Inventors: Enid Scheil, Karl von Reden
Serial #: 11/189,904
Description: A system and method for developing a solid state stripper device is described that more effectively strips off negative carbon ions to produce positively charged carbon ions. In one embodiment the solid state stripping device is a self-supporting aggregate of nanotubes or Buckminster-Fullerenes. Such devices provide, among other things, carbon stripper foil for use in a tandem generator.
