NanoLab Receives Army SBIR for Nanotube Production

Abstract:
NanoLab announced today that they have received the SBIR Phase ll Quality Award for "Large Scale Nanotube Production."

The award stated, "Because of the high strength, low density, and unique electrical and thermal conductivity properties of carbon nanotubes, the Army has sought to take advantage of this new technology while reducing cost and increasing supply. NanoLab® created a chemical vapor deposition reaction chamber that continually synthesizes carbon nanotubes of pre-determined diameter, length and higher quality at a very low cost - less than $100/gram, a savings of over $900/gram. These quantities of low-cost carbon nanotubes have allowed researchers to investigate their properties in a variety of systems and applications including polymer reinforcement and ceramic armor toughening."
