Nanotubes Boost Shape Recovery

Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Dayton, Miami University and the Air Force Research Laboratory have mixed carbon nanotubes with polymer to make a plastic that is good at springing back into shape when heated. The material would be useful for making large area structures in space that need to be packaged for launch and then unfurled later, according to the researchers.
