Thermal Superconductivity in Carbon Nanotubes

Abstract:
Superb conductors of heat and infinitesimal in size, carbon nanotubes might be used to prevent overheating in next-generation computing devices or as fillers to enhance thermal conductivity of insulating materials, such as durable plastics or engine oil. But a research team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has discovered that the nanotubesí role as thermal superconductors is greatly diminished when mixed with materials such as polymers that make up plastics.
