Composite fibers with carbon nanotubes

Abstract:
Strong and versatile carbon nanotubes are finding new applications in improving conventional polymer-based fibers and films. For example, composite fibers made from single-walled carbon nanotubes and polyacrylonitrile - a carbon fiber precursor - are stronger, stiffer and shrink less than standard fibers. Nanotube-reinforced composites could ultimately provide the foundation for a new class of strong and lightweight fibers with properties such as electrical and thermal conductivity unavailable in current textile fibers.
