Nano-team spins tomorrow's yarn

Abstract:
Discovered in 1991, carbon nanotubes are just a few billionths of a metre across, but are ultra-strong. They have been spun before, but directly spinning them into a fibre as they are made has proven very difficult. The Cambridge way brings the industrial production of a myriad of materials made of carbon nanotubes a step closer.
