Commercial applications of (CNTs) soon to be realised

Abstract:
First discovered in 1991, carbon nanotubes have remained largely a laboratory curiosity. Now, researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are out to change that by producing carbon nanotube-based devices for commercial applications. "This material has tremendous electrical, thermal and structural properties, however, few products utilizing CNTs have hit the commercial market," says Jud Ready, a research engineer in GTRI's Electro-Optics, Environment and Materials Laboratory.
