The material he’s describing is Vantablack – the blackest black ever created. It was developed by a company called Surrey NanoSystems (SNS), whose laboratory is housed in a single-storey, pre-fab block in a dreary business park near the port at Newhaven, on Britain’s south coast. Vantablack is made from carbon nanotubes (“Vanta” stands for “vertically aligned nanotube array”). Each tube is just a few nanometres thick and a few hundred nanometres tall – that is, just a few billionths of a metre.

QT:[[”
“As he grew in his profession, Six came to feel he had a right to express himself on the family collection. A series of clashes with his father ensued, many of them about providing greater public access, which has always been a difficulty. Currently, tours of the
collection, which are by appointment only, are booked into next year. The picture that the younger Six sketched was of an inward-looking father who is trying to preserve a legacy by keeping the world at bay, who comes to realize over time that he also has to do battle with a gregarious and extroverted son who feels that the way to preserve that legacy is precisely by sharing it with the wider world. The battles left the younger Six progressively more exasperated: “I would cycle home after and think, Jesus, Dad, I’m trying to help you.””

“Like Enerbee, many energy-harvesting firms remain optimistic and say the technology is improving. Most also acknowledge, as does Alta’s Vijh, that “the market for energy harvesting and the internet of things is a little slow now.” But sooner or later, he says, “it’s going to happen.””
