U.T. Dallas Scientists Win Two Awards For Nanotechnology Breakthroughs

Abstract:
Scientists at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) NanoTech Institute, together with an Australian collaborator, learned this week that they have won two awards one in Australia and the other in the United States for their breakthroughs in fabricating carbon nanotube yarns and transparent nanotube sheets, which promise important industrial applications.

The UTD team, lead by Dr. Ray H. Baughman, and an Australian colleague, Dr. Ken Atkinson from Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Textile and Fibre Technology, were awarded the prestigious NanoVic Prize by Nanotechnology Victoria Ltd., a venture involving three universities and the government of the Australian state of Victoria.
