Strength and Conductivity of Nanotube-Laced Materials

Abstract:
Materials fortified with carbon nanotubes are strongest when the embedded filaments run parallel to each other, but electronic and thermal conductivity are best when the nanotubes are oriented randomly. That's the finding from a team of engineers at Penn who have developed a production technique that permits a finer and more precise dispersion of nanotubes within a material.
