Main Question or Discussion Point

Anyone know a good source to learn more about them. Recently I was watching a video at www.ted.com and a speaker purposed interesting concepts about single layer carbon nanotubes.

Questions I have:
Acceleration of particles(The speaker said something about accelerating particles using the tubes)
Could I accelerate molecules or atoms through them?
How does exposing oxygen to the nanotubes that are semiconductors effect their type (n/p material properties)? If I understand that right than could doing something like a memristor change a carbon nanotube from n to p "type" material dynamically?
How does a carbon fly wheel work? Could this be applied to harvesting lightening?

I just got my bachelors in computer science but I've always been more into physics, I'm planning on going back to get a graduate degree in physics but I need to start learning now... Sorry if I rant
