Little tubes bring big promise

Abstract:
A workable material capable of withstanding intense heat, able to conduct electricity, chemically inert and durable - itís an engineerís dream come true. And itís made possible with ceramics. Ceramics make most people think of pottery and artistic sculptures, but those more familiar with the material know it has several industrial uses such as high-temperature melting pots and auto parts. A team of researchers at UC Davis has improved industrial ceramics even more by creating a new composite involving ceramic materials and single-wall carbon nanotubes.
