Abstract

A track record of generating novel fullerene-like and nanotubular inorganic nanostructures from Cs2O, SiO2-x, WS2, and MoS2 by photothermal ablation with highly concentrated sunlight and ultra-bright lamp light is reviewed, and augmented with new results for exfoliated MoS2 and carbon as well as carbon nanotubes.
