In nanotechnology or the building of extremely small machines and computers, a buckytube (see - Nanotubes) is a long, cylindrical carbon structure consisting of hexagonal graphite molecules attached at the edges. The nanotube was developed from the so-called Fullerene, a structure similar to the way geodesic domes, originally conceived by R. Buckminster Fuller are built. Hence, nanotubes are sometimes called buckytubes.
