carbon nanotube composites

Abstract

Carbon nanotube (CNT) composites offer great promise for making lighter, thinner and stronger structures. Producing CNT composites, however, can be tricky. The focus of this work is to improve production yields of CNT composites by doing research and development in two areas:

  • Research the relationship between ethylene gas concentrations used during CNT growth and yields of usable composite films produced.
  • Develop furnace for growing larger CNT samples, which will enable larger sizes and quantities of research product.
